City Guide

Dormont
For some reason, at least 30 streets in Dormont were renamed in 1909 when the borough was incorporated. Since that time, the borough has been known as "a town without streets" since the majority of roads in the area are designated as "avenues" and there's not a single roadway designated as a "street."
For some reason, at least 30 streets in Dormont were renamed in 1909 when the borough was incorporated. Since that time, the borough has been known as "a town without streets" since the majority of roads in the area are designated as "avenues" and there's not a single roadway designated as a "street."

After a population explosion that lasted from 1910 to 1930, Dormont has had a relatively stable population. In fact, the area has experienced a steady decline since the 1950s. Even with this being the case, though, the population density remains exceptionally high, and people still flock to call the area home. Whether this is because of the historically low crime rate or the beauty of the town, Dormont remains the most packed municipality in all of Allegheny County.

Moving to Dormont

Pennsylvania already has a low crime rate compared to the rest of the nation, and those who call Dormont home get to enjoy an even lower chance of being victimized. This is, of course, an amazing feat considering the fact that the population density in the small borough is 12,000 residents per square mile. Come on, though; that just means people are overly excited about moving here for the peace they'll get. Just remember that when it's time to find rental homes in Dormont, you will need to bring your A-Game.

When to Start Looking

Think about it people...Dormont has an area of less than one square mile, and it already has a population of over 8,500. This equates to there not being many places to go around. Add in the fact that almost half of all residents are renters, and it should be obvious that good apartment rentals go fast in the borough. This means you need to start researching about two months in advance. If you're leaving sooner than that, who knows? Maybe you can find a nice tent? In all seriousness, though, you will likely be able to find a rental apt even a month out, but don't you want more time to pick out your favorite area?

When To Make the Move

Well, if you multiply by the fractional denominator, carry the 2, divide by the square root of the equilateral triangle...now! You need to make the move now, or at least as soon as possible. As stated, the nice homes in this area get snatched up really quickly, and as is obvious by the fact that there aren't many vacancies throughout the city, even the average studio apartment for rent gets taken with relative speed. If you've got the luxury of deciding which month to move in, you might want to avoid the winter since average low temperatures don't even get over 30 degrees from December to March, but in reality, you should just deal with the cold if possible. After all, the doctors can probably get you some fake fingers to replace the frostbitten ones.

What to Bring Along

Anything that will prove how absolutely amazing you are, or at least things that will make it appear as if you are. This includes references from previous landlords and even a credit check. Regardless of where you're moving, proof of income and a completed rental application are a necessity. You can really increase your chances, though, by bringing along a background check. After all, if a landlord has the option of choosing a person who they know isn't a psychopathic mass murderer because they brought a background check, or an individual who didn't bring a background check and could potentially be Charles Manson's long lost brother...who do you think they'll choose?

Dormont Neighborhoods

Trust us: you're going to find a common thread with all of these neighborhoods. That doesn't mean, though, that they don't each have their own perks. Regardless of what anyone tells you, all the neighborhoods here aren't the same -- unless you mean awesome and safe. Then maybe. Otherwise, you'll need to pay attention to the differences to decide which is best for you.

Southern Dormont: This area is loaded with railroad-style homes in order to fit as many homes in as they possibly can. The area is adjacent to West Liberty Avenue, so you have easy access to all the nearby shops; and since the bus line runs along this road, your commute will also be easy.

Southeastern Dormont: Just like other areas of the community, the southeastern area of Dormont has numerous railroad homes. There's also a CVS Pharmacy nearby, and if you've ever needed something in a rush, you know they'll have it (although at an insane price sometimes). Oh, and if you had to spend extra time finding a pet friendly apartment, you'll love that West Liberty Animal Hospital is here.

Dormont Junction: This western area of Dormont is home to relatively large homes that are still built in a way that makes it easy to pack as many buildings as possible on one street. You'll also have the Dormont Junction light rail station, and if you're looking for a place similar to an apartment complex, Deaktor Development is your best shot.

Northern Dormont: This is where you want to be if you want easy access to everything. The Potomac light rail station is central to the entire area, and there are numerous restaurants and shops around. In fact, you can easily get to the Mt. Lebanon Trading Post that's in the area. Oh, and if we have to tell you that homes are packed in tight in this neighborhood, you haven't been paying attention.

Living in Dormont

Dormont was built to house as many residents as possible, and it shows. That doesn't mean, though, that sitting at home is the only thing to do here. There are actually numerous perks of living in the borough in general, and they're not all related to being super close to Pittsburgh.

Culture Shock: Not culture shock in the traditional sense of the word, but you'll get some culture you didn't expect at Hollywood Theater. Their showcasing of movies like "Donnie Darko" and "Back to the Future" pales in comparison to their rendition of the "Rocky Horror Zombie Show."

Bypass the Backyard Pool: Come on, do you really think there's any room to put a pool in your yard here? Luckily, the Dormont Public Pool means you'll still be able to enjoy a dip.

Easy to Get Everywhere: We swear we're not linking the awesome things in Pittsburgh to Dormont, but if you decide to, you won't even have to drive. The light rail will take you right into the big city.

Dormont Junction: This western area of Dormont is home to relatively large homes that are still built in a way that makes it easy to pack as many buildings as possible on one street.

Northern Dormont: This is where you want to be if you want easy access to everything.

Living in Dormont

Dormont was built to house as many residents as possible, and it shows. That doesn't mean, though, that sitting at home is the only thing to do here. There are actually numerous perks of living in the borough in general, and they're not all related to being super close to Pittsburgh.

Culture Shock: Not culture shock in the traditional sense of the word, but you'll get some culture you didn't expect at Hollywood Theater. Their showcasing of movies like "Donnie Darko" and "Back to the Future" pales in comparison to their rendition of the "Rocky Horror Zombie Show."

Bypass the Backyard Pool: Come on, do you really think there's any room to put a pool in your yard here? Luckily, the Dormont Public Pool means you'll still be able to enjoy a dip.

Easy to Get Everywhere: We swear we're not linking the awesome things in Pittsburgh to Dormont, but if you decide to, you won't even have to drive. The light rail will take you right into the big city.
