With its upscale houses, wide streets and border with Frick Park, you’d never know Point Breeze sits just minutes away from bustling city life in Pittsburgh’s East End
The people that live in a very tranquil one-square-mile Point Breeze neighborhood have a very strong sense of community. Their attractive homes are mix of architectural styles, including ranch, stone and mansions, sitting back off the quiet streets surrounded by Frick Park. Frick Park is the largest municipal park largely located in Point Breeze, making the neighborhood another great option for outdoor enthusiasts and dog-lovers. Mellon Park is little city park shared between Shadyside and Point Breeze. Named after an early 19th-century hotel, Point Breeze was host to some of the wealthiest families in Pittsburgh and the entire United States. Andrew Mellon, George Westinghouse, Henry Clay Frick, and Henry John Heinz all had their estates located along Penn Avenue, in stark contrast to its appearance today. The most prominent feature of Point Breeze is the mansion belonging to Henry Clay Frick, known as Clayton, the last remaining home of its kind in Pittsburgh, standing as a testament to another era on the 5.5- acre site.
