Oakland is Pittsburgh’s academic and healthcare hub with three universities, world-class hospitals, the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.  The entire neighborhood can be viewed from the top floors of the impressive Cathedral of Learning, the fourth tallest educational building in the world and the tallest in the western hemisphere.  Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, free wi-fi hotspots, not to mention Schenley Plaza’s carousel, are just steps from your front door.
