West End Village
The “West End” of Pittsburgh is a term used to refer to the western region of the city. It includes the neighborhoods of Sheradon, Windgap, Esplen, Ridgemont, Westwood, Oakwood, East Carnegie, Duquesne Heights, Fairywood and Crafton Heights and the South Side. However… there IS a neighborhood called the West End Village. Originally known as Temperanceville, it is in the “West End” and less than 1 mile from downtown Pittsburgh.
Originally founded as a dry town, it was annexed into the City of Pittsburgh in 1874. Less than 1 square mile in area, it is residential (less than 300 residents) but also has a business district that has recently attracted renewed interest.
The West End Bridge is the connector to the North Side, and Carson Street connects the neighborhood to the South Side and McKees Rocks.
