Just a half mile from PNC Park and the Pittsburgh Pirates, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit located in The Carlyle is priced the same as the Boston condo, but it's a real hit in terms of value. It's $342 less per square foot and 825 square feet larger. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, granite counter tops and granite floors. You'll find granite counter tops and floors in the bathrooms as well. The living areas are all carpeted. And if you're worried about security, the condo comes with Guardian Protection. It's also wired for surround sound. Association fees are $360 per month, and there's a $200 per month parking fee, waived for your first year. The condo is one block away from Market Square — a popular Pittsburgh landmark — and a 14-minute walk to the ballpark, including a stroll over the Roberto Clemente Bridge.
