Neighborhoods to avoid
Pittsburgh is a very nice city, but like every city, it has its slums.
In the city:
Homewood - this is probably the most crime ridden neighborhood in Pittsburgh. There is not very many homicides but there is an extremely large risk of theft.
The Hill District - The Hill has the most cases of theft and violent crimes. There is no attractions in the area other than The Console Energy Center which is home of the Pittsburgh Penguins and many concerts
East Liberty - not as bad as Homewood but it does not have as many things to do as in Homewood.
Wilkinsburg - this area has a lot of crime and a higher murder rate than the city of Pittsburgh.
Penn Hills - it depends on what part of Penn Hills you are in. Some areas in Penn Hills are very nice and are a great place to move in to. However there are some parts with high murder and theft rate and have lot of drugs
North Hills - this area as a whole is a very, very nice place to live. However, there has been a lot more recent cases of robbery and burglary in the Gibsonia area. Also in the North Allegheny and Wexford area there is a large amount of marijuana.
