Windgap Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Located on the far west side of downtown Pittsburgh and surrounded by the Fairywood, Ingram, Chartiers City and Sheraden communities, Windgap is a neighborhood known for its convenient location. Indeed, being in proximity to Pittsburgh’s International Airport, the McKees Rocks business district and the Crafton Ingram Shopping Center, makes this neighborhood a desirable one for its easy access to almost anything.
The neighborhood has still conserved its distinct post-war suburban character. Today, single-family homes consisting of one-story ranches and bungalows can be found surrounded by well-landscaped lawns and quite large backyards.
Those looking for a place to walk and enjoy some fresh air may take advantage of Chartiers Park in the heart of the neighborhood. The park is equipped with playgrounds for children and picnic shelters. Sport enthusiasts may also enjoy some of the best softball and baseball fields in town.
Parents of school-age children will be happy to learn that there are some schools within the neighborhood and just a few blocks nearby. Chartiers Early Childhood School and Chartiers Elementary are conveniently off Chartiers Avenue. Sheraden Elementary School and Langley High School can be found in neighboring Sheradan, whereas Crafton Elementary School and Ingram Elementary School can be found in neighboring Ingram.
Windgap is represented by Pittsburgh City Council District 2 and is inhabited by approximately 1,501 residents which make up 0.4% of Pittsburgh’s total population.
