PITTSBURGH — USA Today has named East Liberty one of the top 10 up-and-coming neighborhoods in the country.

"Pittsburgh's East Liberty suffered a dramatic failed urban renewal plan in the 1960s after its golden era in the 1940s and 1950s. Today, this culturally diverse neighborhood is undergoing a monumental "metropolitan chic" redevelopment effort, including boutique hotels opening in rehabbed historic buildings, new restaurants popping up and Google establishing offices here. The neighborhood's greatest landmark, the East Liberty Presbyterian Church, has survived, embracing a diverse and socially active congregation who have dubbed it "the Cathedral of Hope."
