Ok. Thanks for all the help. I've finally gotten rid of the image that the North Side is one big ghetto. I'll keep looking things up and mabey I'll live there someday.

We do have some ghetto areas, but yes, the North Side is not one big ghetto. And in the areas that look really rundown, there's a decent chance the city is the one sitting on the delinquent properties and doing nothing (ie. Garden Theater Block)

For the record, I don't consider Pittsburgh part of Pennsylvania, but I get overruled by the map every time.

Brighton Heights is more like the North End of the city.

The North Side designated for specific neighborhoods close to the city.

You wouldn't say that Mt. Washington, Beechview, Brookline and Carrick were in the South Side.

I think you're in the minority there Hopes.... I've always considered Brighton Heights as North Side. Sometimes I even consider Bellevue the North Side but I catches myself after a minute.

Brighton Heights is definitely a North Side neighborhood. The neighborhood is linked very strongly to the other North Side neighborhoods through social, civic, school, and church circles, along with public transit routes.

North and South Sides are designated differently. The North Side (as opposed to Central North Side) is anything that was formerly Allegheny City. And how is Brighton Heights not close to the city?

Brighton Heights is served by Zone 1 police station, which is technically the "North Side Police Zone"

I'm looking at a house in Observatory hill, if anyone knows of that area or lives in that area could they list the positives and negatives of living there. I work in the bridgeville area, if that helps.
