morningside

Morningside is a neighborhood in the northern part of Pittsburgh’s East End. The neighborhood was farmland until 1905 when the installation of a streetcar line quickly transformed the area into a suburb. The neighborhood is mainly residential with a small business district in the north part of town. The area used to be populated largely by Italian immigrants, and though the neighborhood has become more diverse in the last 50 years, the area retains definite links to its Italian heritage.
