Hi everyone! Popping over from the South Florida board because my husband was just offered a transfer opportunity to Pittsburgh. We are both very excited becuase we have heard nothing but good things about your area. We do not know anyone up there and have a ton of questions. Anything you can tell me is very much appreciated.
I have looked into schools and have an idea where the best school districts are located, but I have no idea how my DH commute would be from each place. He would be working in South Side near the American Ealge headquarters. Is it better (as far as commute goes) to live south of the city? like Mt. Lebanon area? I heard that there it s rail system that he could take from that area. Do a lot of people commute using public transportation? Also, what is the commute like from the north? How far north could we live and still have like a 30 min commute? Thinking Franklin Park/McCandless area?
Is there an area within a reasonable commute time that we could get a larger lot and maybe a newer house? Like an acre or so built in 2000+
Anything else you can tell me would be awesome! TIA
