There’s much to be stated concerning city living. The shops, the markets, the movie theaters, the nightlife– and also being able to stroll almost everywhere. Living in the city is so excellent there have been roughly 295 tv shows filmed in New York City alone.
While you might find more space in the suburbs, life in the ‘burbs could be a bit too laid back for those used to (or searching) the energy often found in the city. The suburbs also tend to be car-dependent, which could lead to additional car-related expenses like loan payments, maintenance, insurance, and gas.
Perhaps you moved to the suburbs, and are now thinking about returning to the city. Or maybe you’ve never lived in the city but want to give try it out. If you aren’t sure, here are some of the reasons you might want to consider renting a downtown apartment:
You want to live car-free
If you want to walk or bike to work, a downtown apartment might be ideal. For those rainy days, cities often provide mass transit options. Even if you work from home, there’s something to be said for being able to walk to the theater, Pittsburgh Symphony, strip district market, or coffee shop.
Entertainment options are everywhere
No matter what you enjoy — the theater, the opera, museums, local restaurants — you’ll find it in the city. Most large cities like Pittsburgh, have professional sports teams as well, so you can cheer on the hometown heroes. Unlike suburbs, where things are often buttoned up by 11:00 p.m., cities have much more nightlife and things to do after hours.
World-class shopping and dining
If having a wide variety of restaurants to choose from is important to you, cities often provide many more options than suburbs and small towns. Locally owned, independent cafes, bakeries, delis, and coffee shops are also more plentiful. Downtown boutiques and specialty shops provide the one-of-a-kind treasures shoppers crave, and mostly the convenience.
Why Choose Downtown Pittsburgh’s Theater District?
City neighborhoods are often very distinct, with each having its own personality and attractions. There’s often little definition between neighborhoods, with one leading seamlessly into the next. When choosing a downtown neighborhood, you’ll want to consider a variety of factors such as cost, your noise tolerance level to your apartment, proximity to work or public transit stops, and the type of housing you prefer.
Some cities are famous for their architecture, like the Victorians of San Francisco or the turn of the Century buildings of Pittsburgh. From high-rise buildings to historic lofts, cities provide a variety of housing options and this often varies by neighborhood. When moving to a city, you’ll want to research the neighborhoods and visit (if you are able) to get a sense of the area.
