Pictures of Lawrenceville

53 posts in this topic

I have a lot of pics of Lawrenceville, but some of it's quite repetetive so I'll only post a handful of them...

This area has become popular with artists, is Pittsburgh's largest rowhouse neighborhood and is being revitalized. I have essentially changed this thread to include pictures of other Pittsburgh neighborhoods, instead of starting a new thread for each neighborhood.

This style reminds me of Baltimore:

Next up we have the medical and educational center of Pittsburgh, Oakland. Oakland has some of the most bizzarre and ecclectic architecture in the city....

I love these Georgian/Victorian rows, they remind me of San Francisco as they crawl up the hill. One of them is for rent, $1500 I believe for 4 bedrooms.

IIRC "Lawrenceville United" started the video camera program (thus the camera you noted). I remember when I first moved over there, they had just made an arrest based on footage from someone's feed. There are none on my street though, so I don't have any opinion one way or the other about it.

Great pics as always...

nice shots of Uptown.. it's a shame much of the neighborhood has been demolished by that criminal from Carnegie who operates a dozen illegal parking lots there... and that Fifth and Forbes operate as automobile sewers... slicing through the neighborhood with brutal efficiency

In driving into Shadyside to take my mom for lunch, I could only find one close/free parking space. We parked in front of this house which just happened to be my mom's friend's house from 30 years ago:

Couldn't tell if these next three were in Wilkinsburg, Point Breeze or Shadyside:

Thanks to The Gerbil for the post on Chatham Village...this neighborhood on Mt. Washington was named as one of the ten greatest neighborhoods this year by the American Planning Association. It features Georgian Revival rowhouses amidst 200 year old trees, now if only the architecture was as old as the trees....

Great photos. While other cities try duplicate the density, Pittsburgh already has it in place. And it looks real, where other cities tend to have a plastic, Disney type atmosphere. Love it.

Thanks....yes, Pittsburgh has a lot of density. In the 1940s, I believe the Hill District had about 40,000 people per square mile, and although many have fled the city proper, Pittsburgh still has a serious structural density.

Although most of my pics are of the residential areas, here's some classic views of downtown from Mt. Washington:

very comprehensive look at PGH neighborhoods... keep 'em comin'! This is the type of stuff I love... the real essence of the city... I hope to have a little more time to analyze these photos in more detail in the near future
