Home to prestigious universities and museums, world-class hospitals, international cuisine and specialty shops, Oakland is the academic, cultural and healthcare center of Pittsburgh. It is Pennsylvania's third-largest "Downtown," with only Center City Philadelphia and downtown Pittsburgh able to claim more social and economic activity than Oakland.
Oakland is indeed one of Pittsburgh's liveliest neighborhoods. You'll find grand architecture, quaint coffee shops, international cuisine and specialty shops that create the hustle and bustle found virtually every day in Oakland. If you are planning a picnic in the park, an evening of drama or if you are searching for that Picasso masterpiece, Oakland has it all!
