How much are those tax savings really when you're spending much more in gas and vehicle maintenance than living closer to the city?

"Bullets wizzing by your head". I think I can speak for the vast majority of Allegheny County residents by saying many of us have never come close to being near a shooting. What a joke... Then again, the commenter who claimed this also said in a previous thread that I-79 should have gone through the middle of PA where almost no one lives instead of connecting the state's second and fourth largest cities.

Checkout Irwin.

Jeannette is having trouble, but I was in Irwin recently for the first time with a friend who lives near there and was pleasantly surprised at the level of street activity and vibrancy. Seemed to be about the same size as Cannonsburg but much, much more to offer, including the impressive Lamp Theater. I also like the fact that it is so close to the Laurel Highlands fornyear round recreation.

Don't know why Cannonsburg isn't the quaint little town it could be. Just minutes from high end real estate including Southpointe,the Meadows and outlet shops.
