Bon Air is a small neighborhood of just under 900 people in Pittsburgh’s South End. It borders Beltzhoover on the North, Knoxville on the East, Carrick on the East and South, and Brookline on the West.
Between McKinley Park and the other green space that outlines the neighborhood, Bon Air is a little bit insulated, which contributes to the feel of “Country living in the City.” The neighborhood is just about entirely residential.
We began walking Bluff (a.k.a. Uptown) at the Birmingham Bridge, which overlooks the tight, narrow neighborhood that stretches from Oakland to Downtown.
The Bluff neighborhood (more often called Uptown or sometimes Soho) of the City of Pittsburgh sits along the North Bank of the Monongahela River to Fifth Avenue and runs between the Birmingham Bridge and the Liberty Bridge. It borders Downtown on the West, Crawford-Roberts and West Oakland on the North, and South Oakland on the East. The South Side Flats are just across the River on the South.
