Testimonial "My family tried several suburbs when we came to the area from Chicago. But that wasn't us. We're city people. And in Stanton Heights we found a garden, an oasis." Greg C.

Stanton Heights is located east of Downtown. This close-knit, family oriented and pet friendly neighborhood appeals to those looking for a quiet and relaxed way of life.
Fifty years ago the area now known as Stanton Heights wasn't even a city neighborhood, but a private country club. The result is that this neighborhood, set at the top of Stanton Avenue, has the character of a suburb - with new homes, quiet streets, and little to no traffic. Until the mid-1950s, a large portion of the neighborhood was part of the Stanton Heights Golf Course, the largest private course in the city. These days many City Police Officers and Fire Fighters call Stanton Heights home.
Although it has no business district of its own, there is convenient access to the Highland Park, Liberty Avenue and Butler Street shopping districts. Grocery stores, dry cleaners, hardware stores, and pharmacies can be found close by in East Liberty, Bloomfield and Squirrel Hill.
