The Lawrenceville basics: We’re a city neighborhood located less than three miles from “Downtown” Pittsburgh and right next door to the Strip District and Bloomfield. We’re big—nearly 11,000 people call our 2.5 square miles home. We’ve got deep roots. In fact, Stephen Foster’s father charted out our street plans in 1814. And we’re on the rise, with affordable properties, first-rate shopping and restaurants, and the site of the new Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC campus.

But statistics are really just a sliver of our neighborhood’s news. Get the straight talk from people who have chosen Lawrenceville as their preferred place to live or to do business. (Or both!)

There’s more to Lawrenceville than shopping and dining. From the break-o’ dawn to closing time, we’ve got everything you could ask for in a great city neighborhood.
