Overlooking Downtown and the Allegheny River, Troy Hill is a hilltop neighborhood that also includes the Route 28 corridor as well as the development of Washington’s Landing (Herr’s Island). Lowrie Street is the main street through the neighborhood. The 31st Street Bridge extends over Herr’s Island and the Allegheny River to the Strip District on the opposite shore. The Troy Hill Citizens Council is active in preserving the neighborhood’s character through numerous charitable events and beautification efforts. Though it has diversified greatly over the years, the feel of this neighborhood is still defined by the strong sense of community developed by the largely German immigrants who came here in the middle of the 19th Century.
