Off the beaten path

Pittsburgh’s central North Side is famous for its Mexican War Streets, an enclave of exquisitely restored 18th-century row houses that date from the time of the Mexican-American War. It’s stunning over there, especially on Monterey Street, where many of the brick houses’ facades are embellished with flower boxes, brightly colored trim work, and gas lanterns. The Monterey Pub, also on Monterey Street, is a historical little Irish Pub that serves good beer and pub snacks. There are weekly tours that explain the history of the neighborhood and the details of some of the home’s architectural styles and former notable owners. Nearby on Sampsonia Street, you’ll find the Mattress Factory, a contemporary art museum home to a collective of artists-in-residence.
