The most talked-about neighborhood in Pittsburgh packs a punch with its village-like ambiance, vast residential landscape, and bold entrepreneurial spirit. As Lawrenceville continues to rise from the ashes of its industrial past, the East End spot has become an arena for critically acclaimed restaurants, an ever-growing roundup of retail gems, and a fresh crop of young professionals seeking adventure amid a cultural renaissance. As main drag Butler Street routinely flourishes with new establishments, its residential allure skyrockets. Surrounding rustic row homes and centuries-old buildings are renovations, restorations, and new developments ablaze. Still, the area remains a walkable timeline of ghosts present and past. Historical landmarks, like Allegheny Cemetery and Arsenal Park, offer sanctuary for folks of all ages; catalysts in the neighborhood’s staunch communal spirit. Travel-wise, residents relish in a speedy trek to Downtown Pittsburgh and bordering neighbors Bloomfield and the Strip District.
