Elliott is a mid-sized neighborhood just south of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is only located two and a half miles southwest of the downtown area. Located on the southern shore of the Ohio River, Elliott is largely a residential neighborhood with a beautiful view of the downtown area. While walking through Elliott, you will likely see plenty of standalone, single-family homes or duplexes. Some of the larger residences have been converted into several smaller apartment units. Beyond residential buildings, there are only a few churches, a gas station, a few automobile businesses, and a bank. Fun fact: many of the older residents will refer to Elliott as "Dogtown," simply because so many residents are dog owners! 


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is a dynamic and growing city with plenty to do and see. This City of Steel is famous for its professional sports teams, award-winning cultural district and performing arts centers, iconic art, science, and history museums, a growing food scene, and plenty of parks and urban trails.

Like many of Pittsburgh's surrounding neighborhoods, Elliott is an incredibly hilly neighborhood. Some of the streets are so steep that they may be difficult to navigate during rainy, snowy, or icy conditions. Even on sunny days, many of the hills may make your daily walks a bit more strenuous. The benefit, however, is that the hills create a beautiful overlook with sweeping views of the Ohio River. 


Additionally, this neighborhood has sidewalks on all major roads. Many of the smaller roads do not have sidewalks, however. Thankfully, you and your pup will not need to share the roadway with any oncoming traffic or other pedestrians. Elliott is an older neighborhood that was not always well-maintained, so many of the sidewalks may be uneven or have cracks. Be careful and always look where you are stepping!

The boundaries of Elliott include Corliss Street to the northwest, the Ohio River to the northeast, Steuben Street to the southeast, and Chartiers Avenue to the west.
