Neighbors in the Strip Vision

The Strip District, known nationally and regionally as Pittsburgh’s Historic Market District, is a thriving, diverse neighborhood filled with residents, workers, visitors and tourists from across the nation. It is a unique blend of retail & wholesale businesses, urban residences and arts & cultural organizations. It is ethnically diverse and offers shopping, living, working and recreational experiences. The Strip is easily accessible by mass transit which complements the well-maintained streets and bridges. Portal areas are well defined. The Strip is a welcoming, pedestrian-friendly haven for seekers of the old and new. It’s gritty, but clean and colorful, appearance provides evidence that the people who live, work and play in this area care about this community and have made a personal investment in it. The historical markers that appear on many of the buildings throughout the neighborhood instill a sense of history and respect for the past to all who visit.
