North Side Neighborhoods


I've lived in Deutschtown on the North Side for 16 years and I knew nothing about the many adjacent neighborhoods, except one. I knew the territory around California Avenue and Brighton Road that I had staked out as a child on summer vacations with my grandmother. Now I know more than a dozen neighborhoods, from Perry Hilltop on down to the Allegheny River, and especially the ones in between, after taking two tours last summer. "Spotlight on the Heartland, Quality of Place on Pittsburgh's North Side," sponsored by the Allegheny City Society, focused on five of these communities.
