Lawrenceville is one of Pittsburgh's hottest neighborhoods, filled with cool restaurants, galleries and retail shops along the impressive main street called Butler St. From lower Larryville to Upper, there's a place for all the young professionals flocking there, including the artists and creative folk. Here you'll find new townhouses and condos alongside old row houses, some renovated, some ripe for it. Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute is in one rehabbed old factory building, while the Ice Factory is housed in another. And behind castled gates from bustling Butler Street, the dreamlike Allegheny Cemetery reposes. 

Getting around Lawrenceville is easy with these PAT routes:

Butler Street: 64 from Lawrenceville to the Waterfront; 91 from Downtown to Waterworks; 93 from Lawrenceville to Oakland.
Penn Avenue: 54 from the North Side to the South Side via Oakland; 88 from Downtown to Bakery Square.
Liberty Avenue: 86 from Downtown to Wilkinsburg; 87 from Downtown to Morningside/Stanton Heights.
