Testimonial Elliott is a hidden gem. As I walk my dog along quiet residential streets, I continually happen upon spectacular views of Downtown, the Northside and the Ohio River. We're five minutes from the ballparks on the North Shore, and about 8 minutes from Downtown. I wouldn't live anywhere else!

Elliott is located west of Downtown, and home to one of the greatest views in the City - the West End Overlook. Each year, thousands of visitors come to the West End-Elliott Overlook to marvel at Pittsburgh's Fourth of July Fireworks or Pittsburgh's Light Up Night in November.

From almost any point in lofty Elliott, the scenery is spectacular. Some of the homes overlook the magnificent valley below, while others afford a breathtaking view of the Downtown skyline.

Elliott began as true coal-mining town, which evolved into a neighborhood with a rich history. Residents often shop in any of the number of antique stores, or dine at the made-to-order restaurants and traditional taverns in the business district of adjacent West End Village.

Elliott is full of young families, who take full responsibility for, and advantage of, their local facilities. This is a friendly, welcoming neighborhood where civic involvement and renovation of homes, businesses and storefronts are top priority.

The neighborhood of Elliott is a great place to live because it maintains a connection to its roots, yet the area still offers affordable housing rates, green space, and a relaxed environment.
