1 bedroom, $775 per month
Perched atop the South Side, this one bedroom features large rooms and red-hued floorboards. But the real show-stopper is the skyline view. Another win: There’s a bus stop down the block.
3 bedrooms, $850 per month
It’s all about natural light at this bright three bedroom. Bask in the sunlight while strolling around your place on brand new floors and cooking in a freshly updated kitchen. Plus, it’s just a five-minute walk to the Wilkinsburg park-and-ride lot and busway.

Arched doorways and built-ins give this apartment a Wonderland vibe. In addition to its old-school charm, it features a freshly updated kitchen and bathroom. Best part? It’s steps from Chengdu Gourmet and walking distance to Murray Avenue.

3 bedrooms, $1,199 per month
This three bedroom is within walking distance of a grocery store and all the shops of Penn Avenue. Inside, look for built-ins, dark wood moldings, and hardwood floors throughout, perfect for people who hate carpet or have pets. Though the kitchen layout isn’t ideal, it does have new stainless steel appliances. And it’s steps from Spak Brothers, so who needs to cook anyway?
