I live in the New York Landing area of Pittsburg.. right on the Waterfront.... I have never had a problem in the area.. everyonce in a while you would hear a Ambulance or Police.. but thats over on West 10th.. The Old Town area has been renovated. A couple of new restaurants. It's a great area to be in. Close to malls and tranporation. Weather is usually great. A couple of new school additions also.... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
