The South Shore is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania South Side. The South Shore consists of the area surrounding Carson Street, from the West End Bridge to the Liberty Bridge.

The South Shore is an industrial neighborhood, home to several warehouses. The neighborhood is primarily made-up of the popular Station Square, a mixed-use historic preservation development of the former Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad and surrounding areas, conceptualized by Arthur P. Ziegler, Jr. one of the founding national leaders of historic preservation in the United States, and President of the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.

The population of the South Shore was just 56 in the 2000 census,[2] and 19 in 2010.[1]
