Shadyside is in the heart of Pittsburgh's East End. Well-maintained, stately Victorian mansions stand in quiet elegance alongside carefully restored homes. Apartment and condominium buildings full of hardwood floors and old-fashioned architectural character, along with newer, modern homes and buildings are woven together, making a unique and beautiful neighborhood. Since the 1920s, a mix of affluent families, young professionals, artists, students, and apartment dwellers have settled in Shadyside.
The neighborhood has two shopping areas close to each other: one on Walnut Street, the other on Ellswsworth Avenue.
Ellsworth Avenue offers an interesting and eclectic array of shops, eateries and galleries.
It is often the site of street festivals and similar events.
Each store and restaurant has its own hours.
On-street parking is available.
