The South Side neighborhood contains more restaurants and bars than perhaps anywhere else in Pittsburgh. It is located along the Monongahela River, extending from Station Square about 30 blocks to the east, and extending inland several blocks from the river. The central artery is East Carson street on which most of the restaurants and bars are located. Historically the neighborhood was home to the millworkers for the steel mills that once lined the Monongahela River. Since most of these workers came from eastern Europe there is a European feel to the neighborhood, with small rowhouses, dozens of churches of various ethnic persuasions and even more neighborhood bars and small shops all mixed together.
