The Talent Dividend
East Liberty takes the prize for the most impressive turnaround neighborhood in Pittsburgh of late. That includes rehabbed old buildings, like the ornate Kelly-Strayhorn to an apartment building underway on the corner of N. Highland along with new restaurants, including BRGR, Spoon, Dinette, Paris 66 Bistro and Union Pig & Chicken. This area also boasts three grocery stores, from the first Whole Foods in town to Trader Joe's and Market District Giant Eagle. And its greatest landmark, the East Liberty Presbyterian Church, endures. Don't miss the artsy and cool new pedestrian bridge behind EastSide that now connects this area with Ellsworth St.
Plenty of Port Authority bus routes serve East Liberty and the core of the EL transit service is the much-loved Martin Luther King, Jr. East Busway which bypasses local traffic to zip passengers between Downtown and the East End. Numerous local buses also provide service from East Liberty to Oakland, Downtown and various city neighborhoods – routes include the 71C, 74, 77, 82, 86, 88 and 89 on Penn Avenue, the 71A on Negley and the 71B on Highland.
