Polish Hill, Pittsburgh's Most Vertical Neighborhood
Polish Hill is a small, friendly neighborhood comfortably nestled on the steep hillside between the Hill District and the Strip District. Minutes away from the activity of downtown Pittsburgh, our front porches and doorsteps line the quiet residential streets, welcoming frequent neighborly visits. Polish Hill boasts some of the best views from our hill tops. Our residents range in age from one to one hundred and each calls the other neighbor.
