Testimonial "My family recently moved to Deutschtown after an extensive search of many neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. Ultimately we fell in love with the Northside. We specifically chose the Deutschtown neighborhood because we wanted a true urban environment within walking distance to the things we love. East Ohio Street is becoming more vibrant everyday with old and new businesses alike. The Victorian architecture is stunning and access to the beautiful Allegheny Commons Park is right down the street. We are a stone's throw away from our favorite museums; the Warhol and the Mattress Factory. We can easily walk to Allegheny River to go kayaking or bike along the river trails to take us anywhere in the city. The neighborhood itself has a turn of the century feel with places like Max's Allegheny Tavern and Penn Brewery. The neighborhood also has the best Farmer's Market in the city. On top of all of this, the neighbors are friendly and interested in revitalizing a true historic Pittsburgh neighborhood. We couldn't imagine living anywhere else."

Just across the river from Pittsburgh's Cultural District and next to the North Shore, you'll find Deutschtown, also known as East Allegheny. Originally the home of many German immigrant families, the area today not only remains traditional and historic, but is now also considered to be an eco-friendly, young, and developing area of the Northside. The convenient riverside location connects East Allegheny to the rest of Pittsburgh, with easy access to all of the city's major highways.
The modern history of Deutschtown dates back to the 18th century. Proud of their roots, residents worked hard to receive historic designations to preserve the wonderful remnants of the local heritage, much of which was shaped by German immigrants. Deutschtown offers great historic architecture alongside new town homes, and a scenic riverfront park, shopping, businesses, churches and recreation are all conveniently located within walking distance of this hip community.
Since 2000, Deutschtown has been experiencing growing momentum. This pioneering community now counts many young professionals among its residents, and newer developments include renovated homes, new stadiums for the Pirates and Steelers, and new business, such as the recently opened Rivers Casino.
