Testimonial I have lived in several neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, but by far Lawrenceville has been my favorite. My Downtown office is just 30 blocks from my apartment - an unbeatable commute of just a few minutes by bus or bike. I also love that Lawrenceville is an up-and-coming neighborhood for young professionals, artists and families. With a state-of-the-art Children's Hospital, hip new eateries like Tamari and the Round Corner Cantina, and tons of boutiques and art galleries, there is definitely a buzz about this neighborhood. When it comes time to buy my first house, I am definitely going to settle down in Lawrenceville!
