"bigelow a no no"

nothing on this street at all really.
it's nothing like the rest of downtown pittsburgh.
you can't just walk a block or two to find somewhere to
eat, you have to go a few miles.
same goes if you would need gas so remember to
fill up before
comming anywhere near this street
also be very carefull when on this street mainly at night.
it's far from being the best street to
be on alone

"Don't live in this part of pittsburgh!"

Don't live in this part of pittsburgh! its great if you like being robed, was mugged three times during my three months living there. Cheap rent and close to some quality resterants. But overall its a bad area and i would not advise on living there. But it is ok if you have inner city experience I DIDN'T!

"Stay far away from Pittsburgh"

This street is in the downtown area of Pittsburgh. I am living here for a job for a couple of months in the Doubletree Hotel. This review is not about the Doubletree (which I find to be a pleasaent 3-star hotel.) This review is not about Pittsburgh (which I find to have limited charm, but charm nonetheless.)

This is about the neighborhood. Even for a financial district this area is terrible. Not one bodega or market anywhere. There is a 7-eleven but I don't consider this unless you want a day old stale hot dog. There are not gas stations, no fast food restaurants, no book stores, no libraries, no cafes. There are a few overpriced restaurants in the hotels but their menus are ridiculously small and bland.

Avoid downtown Pittsburgh at all costs. This would seem obvious but I hope this review reaches those who are offered a choice between the Doubletree downtown or the Doubletree at the Pittsburgh Airport. At least the airport location will allow you to get out of here sooner.
wintertonres1 While downtown Pittsburgh is by no means NYC, it's not as bad as it's made to be out here, for a rust-belt downtown business district. Things do tend to close down at night or on weekends, but there has been a lot of improvements with this in recent years by the Cultural District - surrounding Penn and Liberty, over on the Allegheny River side of the triangle. There are quite a few coffee shops and good restaurants - if you head a few blocks over to the cultural district. PS - while the downtown Barnes and Noble's did close last year, there is a library downtown, on Smithfield, near Sixth St.
