Explore Our Vibrant Neighborhood
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 campus.
