MACC: Morningside Area Community Council

About Morningside

house7Morningside is located east of Downtown and is surrounded by the Allegheny River, Stanton Heights, Highland Park, and East Liberty.

The neighborhood of Morningside, distinguished by its tree-lined streets and two-story brick homes with porches, used to be a farm community until 1905, when the Chislett Street trolley line came. Major residental development followed several years later. Morningside is a quiet residential community, less than two square miles in area, where people tend to know one another. A featured annual event here is the St. Rocco Festival, which takes place for two days in August and consists of an Italian mass followed by singing, dancing, and a fireworks display.Morningside homes

Morningside abounds with well-kept brick homes, matching side by side down pleasant, tree-lined streets with plenty of ballfields and playgrounds for youngsters. It is within walking distance of Highland Park and the Pittsburgh Zoo, and is just a short drive to the Waterworks Mall.

Morningside remains a stable, prosperous community for its hard-working residents. The neighborhood has strong ethnic roots, with local churches playing an active role in community programs.
