Which neighborhoods are near and safe to live in?

Note: For someone looking for a studio/1 bedroom it is not uncommon to pay $2K+/month EXCLUDING utilities. If you share a room, it ranges from $600+ depending on how many people, where, etc., but it is very rare to find something within the $300/range (unless it’s your friend or relative’s home), as you could in Pittsburgh.

What apartments are nearby?
A: Archstone is the closest apartment complex to EA and you can walk there. It is a safe, nice neighborhood and the distance is roughly about from the South Side bars to the ETC, if you walk across the Hot Metal Bridge. However, you pay for it – it is really expensive. Such is the housing situation in the Bay Area; there is more demand than supply. Especially for short term leases, the cost can be almost as much as an extended-stay hotel. If you haven’t looked already, try searching on:
