Lawrenceville

Lawrenceville is one of the largest neighborhood areas in Pittsburgh. It is located northeast of downtown, and like many of the city's riverfront neighborhoods, it has an industrial past. And like many industrial-era neighbourhoods, it's gentrifying and becoming hipsterized.

 

That's bad news if you're looking for a cheap place to live, good news if you're going to eat out or are looking for live entertainment.

When travelling on business about a month ago, I got a chance to visit Lawrenceville after a day's customer meetings. Armed only with my X100F I went for a walk and sought out interesting stuff to shoot.

This is clearly a neighbourhood in transition; it will be interesting to see what it looks like in 5 years' time (or even 2).
