Morningside is one of Pittsburgh’s best kept secrets. Close-knit and friendly, neighbors live in two-story brick homes with old fashioned porches that encourage long talks and quick chats with friends and neighbors. Children ride their bicycles in the gentle shade of the trees that line the sidewalk, and joggers have two-square miles of neighborhood to explore. The Morningside Area Community Council meets the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at the Morningside VFW Hall at 1820 Morningside Avenue.
Did you know that trees increase property value, decrease storm runoff, help eliminate pollution, cut energy costs and add beauty and harmony to our beautiful neighborhood?
