Trendy neighborhoods in Pittsburgh?

There is a possibility I may be moving to Pittsburgh, so I'm going to visit soon to scope out the city. I know very little about Pittsburgh, so I was wondering -- are there any trendy areas I should look into?

    If you are looking for trendy places to live and you are a recent college grad and are beyond living in the bar scene I would say to check out Mt Washington/ Duquesne nights, Lawrenceville, Bloomfield, Morningside, and Regent Square.

    Pittsburgh is such a beautiful, unique city. Nothing is flat, and nothing is straight! Get used to windy, curvy roads and lots of steep angles. We are generally spared the worst of winter snow and ice, particularly in the south hills. Plus, did you know that Pittsburgh has more bridges that any other city in the world except for Venice? Pittsburgh itself has 3 navigable rivers (the Allegheny and the Monongahela join at the point of Pittsburgh to form the Ohio), and just up the Monongahela a bit, in McKeesport, is the Youghiogheny, which is also navigable. We have barge and boat traffic, we have trains going through downtown and lots of other places. If you're going to move to the city of Pittsburgh itself, Mt.. Washington offers a great view if you're in a building that is perched on the edge of the cliff. Parking can be problematic on Mt Washington. Oakland is where all the big colleges are (Pitt, Carnegie Mellon, Chatham) as well as big hospitals and the main branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh as well as the Carnegie Museum of Natural History and the Carnegie Museum of Art. They are all in one big building. Plus, if you're into hockey (Pittsburgh Penguins), you could hop a bus and avoid high prices to go to the hockey games in the Penguins stadium. Great to be around all of those colleges and college students. Lots of vibrancy in the Oakland area, with sections of gentility, too. Plus, you can get public transportation to anywhere from Oakland and downtown Pittsburgh is within walking distance. The North Shore is across one of the rivers, and there you will find the sports stadiums and the main branch of the post office, and the main branch of the Community College of Allegheny County - Allegheny Campus. You'll also find the National Aviary near the stadiums and CCAC. So, if you're really into baseball (Pittsburgh Pirates) or football (Steelers, as well as University of Pittsburgh play at the football stadium), and you'll be able to walk to the games (and avoid all those high parking prices) if you live on the North Shore. Downtown Pittsburgh itself is really growing in terms of a lot of great apartment buildings in downtown and in the Strip District The Strip is a place where you'll find a lot of food markets and restaurants and shops and downtown Pittsburgh is just a few steps away! Another great place to live in Pittsburgh is the South Side, which is very trendy and full of great shopping and great restaurants and an art scene, too. You can drive or walk across a bridge and find yourself in downtown quickly. I'd really suggest that you rent a couple of movies and pay attention to the scenery to get a flavor of Pittsburgh: "Striking Distance" (Bruce Willis, 1993), "The Next Three Days" (Russell Crowe 2010), and "Jack Reacher" (Tom Cruise, 2012). There are tons of other movies that have been shot in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is a wonderful city! Enjoy!

    During sporting events, the North Shore is the place to be. Lawrenceville and Shadyside are solid trendy options. Strip District and South Side are good for nightlife. Downtown has a great food season - stay near the Cultural District.
