North Side: Allegheny West


"Allegheny West, a mixed residential-industrial neighborhood, was once known as Lincoln-Beech after two prominent residential streets. Ridge Avenue, thought in the late 19th century to have more millionaires per square foot than any other place in the world, was accordingly termed 'Millionaires' Row.' Monument Hill, the original location of the Western Theological Seminary, the first west of the Alleghenies, now is the site of [the Allegheny Campus of the Community College of Allegheny County.]" (32)
