East Liberty is fully recharged. Nestled in Pittsburgh’s East End about 5 miles outside of downtown, the neighborhood’s energy is fueled by huge investments from the technology industry and grounded in a resilient community. East Liberty once rivaled downtown as a booming retail, transportation and culture center where the area’s elites and industrialists built grand homes and public buildings in the early 1900s to escape the city. But when suburbs began to lure residents away in the 1950s, failed attempts to retain population ended up crippling East Liberty’s economy and vibrancy.
