What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Pittsburg

I have not far from my home restaurants, schools, shops, sidewalks, streets, but many cars, big traffic

It's next to a country club. The streets are not through streets so there's very little traffic. Most of the nearby neighbors are retired. The card paths at the country club are ideal for running at night.

I like that people walk and kids play outside when the weather is nice. It's easy to get to know your neighbors.

We have a downtown that is slowly being revitalized with boutiques and local restaurants. There is a great coffeeshop called Root downtown as well as several new breweries that serve food.

It's very scenic and nice views. The neighbors are super friendly and love pets. Has lots of nice nature places to visit.

I have respectable neighbors surrounding me except immediately next door. Everybody, except them, take good care of their houses and yards and are not noisy.
