prop. n. A renowned historic neighborhood in Pittsburgh
, Pennsylvania, located across the Monongahela
River from Downtown
. The location of many famous bars, restaurants, theaters, and tattoo parlors. Originally a working-class neighborhood, the South Side became up-and-coming
after the major steel mills closed in the 1980s.
The South Side, being a large area, is sometimes divided into the "South Side Flats" (near the river) and the "South Side Slopes". It is not to be confused with the "South Shore", which refers to all shoreline neighborhoods south of the Mon, or the South Hills.
Bob took his new girlfriend out to the South Side for some bar-hopping.
