Pittsburgh North Side

The Pittsburgh Northside is a section of Pittsburgh located north of downtown, just across the Allegheny and Ohio rivers. It was formerly the City of Allegheny, but was annexed (the local residents say "stolen") by the City of Pittsburgh in 1907. The first World Series was played here, at Exposition Park, and the North Side was home to famous composer Stephen Foster.
