Renewal & Reality: Why Not Wilkinsburg?
With a thriving main street, dozens of churches, and a prosperous middle class, Wilkinsburg was once among Pittsburgh's most popular suburbs. But changing times, a failing economy and crime damaged the borough and its citizens. Wilkinsburg is among many local communities fighting to come back – but it faces unique challenges. Neighboring districts have refused to partner with Wilkinsburg’s troubled high school. A referendum to bring liquor licenses into the long-dry borough has passed, but has also raised concerns. The borough’s revival attempts haven’t earned the same media attention as other turnaround neighborhoods like Braddock, East Liberty and Lawrenceville, so they’re fighting to tell their story. Economic development and the spirit of rediscovery are giving many neighborhoods a second chance. So - why not Wilkinsburg?
