City of Pittsburgh Council District 8

Point Breeze


Bordered by Squirrel Hill and Shadyside, Point Breeze is home to a plethora of young professionals with families, many of whom are associated with the City’s educational and healthcare institutions.

Point Breeze boasts many large, gracious homes along wide, tree-lined streets.  The neighborhood is also home to the Frick Art and Historical Center, where visitors can learn more about famous Pittsburgh industrialist Henry Clay Frick and view an impressive art collection.

While Point Breeze has a quaint business district of its own along Reynolds Street, residents can easily walk to the Shadyside or Squirrel Hill business districts, or hop on a bus along the Martin Luther King Busway to Downtown Pittsburgh.

The main entrance to Frick Park, Pittsburgh’s largest municipal park, is located in the neighborhood. The Point Breeze portion of the 561-acre park includes wooded trails, flowing streams, bowling greens, and the 151-acre Frick Woods Nature Reserve where visitors can expect to catch a glimpse of Western Pennsylvania’s beautiful wildlife.
