Each day, Pittsburgh's Hill District reinvents itself as a city neighborhood like no other, so bustling are its environs, so stark are its contrasts.

These days in the Hill, the construction of homes and buildings, the rebuilding of lives, the recognition of rich history are taking head-on the blight of decades, the despair of the disenfranchised, the wounds of the past.

In this four-part series, Post-Gazette staff writer Michael A. Fuoco and staff photographer Peter Diana describe how residents are working hard to build on the community's momentum.
