But that isn't all he did. He also noted it is on a par with other up-and-coming neighborhoods, and not far from very popular and well-established neighborhoods like Shadyside.

Okay that's true, but those neighborhoods are also in Zone Five too. Bloomfield may not my the greatest neighborhood though it's not like it's one of the worst (especially compared to near by areas).
I'd be more comfortable walking in Bloomfield at night (which I've done) than say the Bluff, southern Highland Park, southern Mt. Washington, Elliot, southern Brighton Heights and or Perry North from Watson Bvld to Waldrof St.
Again IMO it's no worse the Strip/Larwanceville/Central Oakland/Southside... Though I also see interested burgher's redefined POV, even though the good ("nice neighborhood vibe" & good location) may out way the bad (some section 8 rentals & a decent amount of crime) it's not the best place to raise a family (to me it's still not too bad though).

Just some more stats:

According to 2006-2010 ACS data, about 31.3% of households in Bloomfield are family households. Perhaps not surprisingly, the majority of Bloomfield kids go to private schools (71.4% PK-8, 58.1% 9-12).

This can go on and on. We'll agree to disagree. I'm not spending $150,000 plus interest to live in freaking Bloomfield.

I don't think it is so much a matter of agreeing to disagree on some factual matter, as agreeing that different people can have different preferences.

I lived in Bloomfield from 2007-2011. It's one of the most awesome neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Why do you hate it so much?

I agree with you. I've never lived in Bloomfield, but would have no objection to living there. Sure its in an urban area and has the problems that go along with it, but really its not that bad of a place to live at all.
