Talk:Pittsburgh/South Side

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

I think this needs to be disambiguated-- or is it really the only "South Side"? I can't think of others offhand, but it's sounds like it. Thoughts? Majnoona 13:23, 21 Mar 2004 (EST)

It is the only Southside in Pittsburgh and the name is well understood and not ambiguous to any local. It is comparable (namewise) to the "oldtown", or "downtown" that you find in many cities. There is also a "Northside", which is where the sports stadiums are and people use these "neighborhood" terms.
I think you're right that it would be better placed under "Districts", or maybe "Neighborhoods". Your distinction isn't clear to me. Anyway, I'll take a pass at clearing this up but I'm a newbie so you might want to keep an eye on me.

Hi Mr. Goetsch! I think MAJ mentioned disambiguation because all of the Wikitravel pages are at more or less the same level. There are a couple of different ways to do it, but my understanding is that in the case of a neighborhood within a city it would be something like Pittsburgh/Southside, as so not to confuse it with, say, Chicago/Southside. -- Mark 12:03, 23 Mar 2004 (EST)
