The South Side of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is an energetic and eclectic mix of businesses and restaurants, family homes, and professional and student living, all located across the Monongahela River from downtown Pittsburgh.

The South Side is comprised of two main sections, the South Side Flats and the South Side Slopes. The Slopes include homes and businesses built into the naturally-elevated topography of Pittsburgh’s South Hills. (The Slopes also offer the perfect view of Pittsburgh’s famed city skyline!)

The South Side Flats span the main thoroughfare, East Carson Street, and include the surrounding streets on either side, with the Monongahela River bordering the area’s most northern location and the Slopes to its south. The South Side Flats are made up of both business and residential areas, featuring a wide variety of restaurants, shopping, apartments, lofts, cultural activities and dynamic nightlife options.
