The Cultural District encompasses over 50 dining establishments, 90 retail shops, seven world-class theaters and a dozen art galleries. Nearby is Market Square, PPG, Gateway Center, Point Park University, and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. The North Shore’s Heinz Field and PNC Park
are just across the Fort Duquesne bridge.
The Strip District was once an industrial neighborhood with foundries, mills, and other production shops. Produce merchants also moved in, as did wholesalers and grocers thanks to the access to the nearby train lines. Over the years these merchants and industries went into decline, and most of them moved out of the neighborhood entirely.
The Strip District is now home to a large assortment of international grocery stores, retailers, boutique shops, independent merchants, and several of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh.
Market Square is located at the intersection of Forbes Avenue and Market Street. After a public/private modernization in the late 2000s the square is now known as a social and cultural hub. There are a number of restaurants, ranging from fast casual to fine dining. Cafes and retailers occupy ground level buildings immediately facing the square, while housing units and offices occupy upper levels.Learn More
