In this installment of our monthly rental guide, we present eight places across the city worthy of your time (and money), including an artsy apartment and a skyline suite.

We scoured Craigslist so you don’t have to, highlighting apartments with walkable neighborhoods, public transit access and charm, in our quest to make apartment hunting less of a chore. In case you missed last month’s guide, check it out here, as some are still on the market.

Here are eight Pittsburgh apartments worth renting right now. Get ’em while they’re hot (or while the listings are still up).
