Originally know as the City of Allegheny until it was annexed by Pittsburgh in 1907, the area to the north of the city is now called the Northside. It is home to 18 different neighborhoods along the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers and adjacent hillsides including Allegheny West, Manchester, the Mexican War Streets, Central Northside, Deutschtown, Spring Garden, Troy Hill, Brighton Heights, Observatory Hill and several others. It is the location of some of Pittsburgh’s most notable attractions including PNC Park, Heinz Field, River’s Casino, The Andy Warhol Museum, The Carnegie Science Center, The Mattress Factory, The National Aviary and The Pittsburgh Children’s Museum, just to name a few.
The beautifully restored Mexican War Streets and Allegheny West neighborhoods contain some of Pittsburgh’s best collection of Victorian era row homes, while up on the hillside breathtaking city views can be found in neighborhoods like Fineview and Observatory Hill.
