Consisting of 2.5 square miles, Lawrenceville is one of the largest neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Bordering neighborhoods include the bustling Strip District area, with many local shops and markets, and Bloomfield, “Pittsburgh’s Little Italy.” Butler Street, Lawrenceville’s main drag, is home to many shops, restaurants and bars, and is one of the many reasons the area has become such a destination for residents and visitors. Young people continue to flock to the neighborhood, with its many art galleries, cultural happenings, venues and startups that continue to make Lawrenceville desirable to the “hip” contingent.
Both older and newer styles of homes are available in the Lawrenceville real estate market, a reflection of the blend of residents both young and old who call the area home. The community has notable seasonal events, including Art All Night in the spring, Doo Dah Days in the summer, a Lawrenceville Hospitality House tour in the fall, and the Joy of Cookies Cookie tour in the winter. Many of these events are supported by the Lawrenceville Corporation, an organization responsible for overseeing the revitalization of the area while protecting the interests of both residents and business-owners.
In addition to many startups, co-working spaces and independently owned businesses, Lawrenceville is the site for the new Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute, and many other well-respected institutions and industries that contribute to the local economy.
