The Strip District is a vibrant amalgamation of Pittsburgh’s past, present, and imagined future. It is probably best known locally for food sellers and other businesses that reflect the neighborhood’s long immigrant history. In its 200-plus-year history, however, the Strip has been a site of industry, the region’s wholesale produce distribution hub, a center for nighttime entertainment, and, most recently, a home to Pittsburgh’s flourishing technology sector. The Strip’s ongoing evolution and changing demographics are mirrored in the architecture in this sprawling neighborhood.

The tour focuses on the Strip Historic District, which extends from 15th Street to 22nd Street, between Liberty Avenue and Railroad Avenue. Preservation and repurposing of historic buildings have been key to revitalization of the Strip in the last 20 years, and we will see how the mix of old and new—sometimes in the same structure—has brought renewed life to one of Pittsburgh’s most distinctive neighborhoods.

Tour Meeting Point: St. Patrick Church, 1711 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222 (near corner of 17th Street and Liberty). Enter garden from 17th Street and meet near the church’s steps.

Tour Ending Point: The Terminal, outside the public passageway at Smallman and 17th Streets. Pittsburgh, PA 15222
