Pittsburgh - Districts -

Like many cities, Pittsburgh is divided into districts:

  Point Breeze
  North Side
  South Side
  Mount Washington
  Squirrel Hill
  Polish Hill
  West End
  Strip District

This is not an exhaustive list; there are numerous others. For a complete list of districts and neighborhoods here is a list published by the City of Pittsburgh that includes a map of each which can be printed out. Some of these areas are ethnic neighborhoods, such as Polish Hill, and Squirrel Hill (a largely Jewish neighborhood). Others began as independent cities; for instance the North Side, on the northern shore of the Allegheny river, began as the city of Allegheny and the South Side, on the southern shore of the Monongahela river, was the city of Birmingham, but now they are incorporated into the city proper.
