map of West End.
End and Elliott are
located west of Downtown.
The communities are located on high bluffs, and a grand view of
the Ohio River is featured from the West End-Elliott Overlook.
They are surrounded by Westwood,
West End and Elliott began as true coal-mining towns,
which evolved into neighborhoods with a rich history. Residents often shop in any of the number of antique stores, or dine at the made-to-order
restaurants and quaint taverns in the business district along Lorenz and Chartiers Avenue. West End Park, with its historic gazebo and flower-strewn lawns share a hilltop with Herschel Park, where active
residents play baseball, soccer, or basketball. Each year, thousands of visitors come to the West End-Elliott Overlook to marvel at Pittsburgh's Fourth of July Fireworks or Pittsburgh's
Light Up Night in November.
From almost any point in lofty West End or
Elliott, the scenery is
spectacular. Some of the homes overlook the magnificent valley below, while others afford
a breathtaking view of the Downtown skyline.
West End/Elliott is full of young families, who take full responsibility for,
and advantage of their local facilities. This is a friendly, welcoming neighborhood where civic involvement to renovate homes, businesses and storefronts is top priority
