Bloomfield


Where can you nosh on homemade haluska, sing karaoke, savor pastachiotti and sip Peroni al fresco, or pick up a Howard Zinn tome? Or within a few blocks along a bustling business district people watch at a trendy coffeehouse, catch local bands, peruse contemporary art, and sample traditional European spaghetti ice cream?

Located just east of Downtown, Bloomfield boasts one of Pittsburgh's largest and most active business districts and is home to some 15,000 residents. The bustling community keeps long-time residents, tourists and new neighbors happy with its array of eateries, community celebrations, world-class health care, and host of neighborhood hot-spots.

With a central location, new mixed-use developments in the works and an authentic charm, Bloomfield has emerged as a magnet for college kids, hospital workers, grad students, recent immigrants, and young professionals alike. Embodying a mix of the deep-rooted, uprooted, young and old, and Pittsburgh born and bred and those new to town, Bloomfield is ready for its close-up.

Along Liberty Avenue, Bloomfield residents can pick up the 86 to Downtown, the Strip District and East Liberty, or 64 to Lawrenceville, Shadyside, Squirrel Hill and the Waterfront. The 54 (formerly the 54C) also picks up along Liberty as well as Main Street, and provides service to the North Side, Strip District, Polish Hill, Oakland and the South Side. Along Friendship Avenue, the 87 runs between Downtown, the Strip and East Liberty, with alternating trips serving Morningside and Stanton Heights. The 88 serves the Penn Avenue Arts Corridor, from Downtown and the Strip to Bakery Square. For service to Oakland via the Bloomfield Bridge, riders can pick up the 93 Lawrenceville-Oakland along Main Street.
