"Why is the house shaking? Are we back in California?"

Wallaston Ave is a nice, mostly quiet cul-de-sac on the Northwest side of town. I'll get to that in a moment though :)

This was the second house I lived in when I moved to Pittsburgh. The street was great, we had really nice neighbours, and the folk we'd see as we came and left would mostly smile and acknowledge you if they saw you. Being a narrow street and a dead end to boot, we rarely got traffic that wasn't warranted. Those of you with kids will understand the bonus there. We liked the area, and being close to the city for work. The only thing I would say about it was that the house would literally shake with the passing freight trains. It was enough to be noticeable at first, terrifying the first time (until we worked out what was happening) but we got used to it after a while and it no longer caused us any sort of interruption to our regular schedule. If you really like trains then this is the location for you!

A tidy street overall, with easy access and good community spirit. I very much miss living there.
