History of East Liberty
The rise and fall of East Liberty is a familiar story in Pittsburgh. In its “golden era” in the 1940s and 1950s, East Liberty exemplified a vibrant commercial center and a tight-knit residential community. Pittsburgh’s “second downtown” declined rapidly in the 1960s after an ambitious urban renewal program designed to remake East Liberty so that it could compete with the new suburban markets and shopping malls. This 1999 community plan, developed by stakeholders and called A Vision for East Liberty, set the stage for the next generation of revitalization. The plan highlighted community initiatives that represented the beginning of local investment and success, which became the building blocks for change. East Liberty was determined to reposition itself as a successful, self-sustaining community once again. –via East Liberty Development Corp.
