Downtown Pittsburgh Listing Deal You Will Want to Check Out in December
For many of us, it’s hard to pass up an opportunity to live in Downtown Pittsburgh, especially when you find an amazing deal. This is what RentHop likes to refer to internally as gems. Thanks to years of accumulated rental data, we have some of the most affordable and quality rental listings the Downtown Pittsburgh has to offer. Our inventory of listings has grown exponentially over the years, this of one our favorite deals for rental listings.
The phenomenon of low supply/inventory of available listings continues into the month of December though demand has started to wane due to seasonality and the introduction of the new Omicron coronavirus variant. As a result, rental concessions being offered by StarLoftsPgh.com are remaining steady at pre pandemic rates (on average one month free) with some buildings not even offering any. Thankfully, RentHop is still getting a great inventory of gems. Today we’ll focus on some of our favorite deals in downtown Pittsburgh this coming December!
In a smaller mid-rise, the bottom floor is really just the garden level of the building. Those buildings with a few more levels may mean the bottom consists of 1-3 stories. Regardless, living on the bottom floors provide:
Easy access both into and out of the building
A quicker trip to ground-floor amenities like common outdoor space
The ability to take the stairs all the time rather than dealing with the elevator
You also don’t have to worry about annoying a neighbor below you should you want to move furniture around, invite friends over or just tend to walk heavily.
Linguini with clams is one of the most satisfying Italian dishes to cook and eat. The fresher the clams, the more flavorsome the sauce.
LIST OF INGREDIENTS
2 LBS. of clams (Wholeys Fish Market, Strip District Pittsburgh)
11 1/2 OZ. of Barilla linguini
1 OZ. of parsley
1 of garlic clove
extra-virgin olive oil
In a large bowl or pan, soak the clams in lightly salted water for at least 2 hours; every 30 minutes, use your hands to gently drain them without stirring up any sand that has filtered to the bottom of the pan; transfer them to a plate, change the water, and add a pinch of salt. Be careful not to break the shells during this process.
Trim the parsley, removing the leaves only; wash and dry with a paper towel and finely chop. Crush and mince 1 garlic clove.
Cook spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally. Drain about 2 minutes before al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water.
Meanwhile, in a pan large enough to hold the clams and linguini, sauté the garlic with 4 Tbsp. oil for 30 seconds, then add the parsley.
After a few seconds, add the drained clams: cook for 1-2 minutes until they start to open, then add 3 small ladlefuls of pasta cooking water.
Drain the linguini and transfer directly to the pan with the clams. Cook until the pasta is al dente and a creamy sauce forms due to the starch being released. Add extra water pasta cooking water if needed. Top with chopped parsley to taste and serve.
