Lawrenceville is a great place to live and to have your family and friends close to so many Pittsburgh advantages. I love it. But I lived in a loft across from the Thunderbird and have attended shows there. It's gotta be over capacity now and the traffic and "all hours" patrons can be a concern--and I mean that to include those who sit at the bar early in the day. And,w why should a family who has lovingly restored their home and enjoys city life have to move to the suburbs? Many of us would live no where but within the city of Pittsburgh--or Lawrenceville for that matter. The over-development here, however, is now encroaching not only on Butler Street but the few green spaces left in the 40's near the cemeteries (where I live now). Multi-unit residential development is going to create more concerns with our narrow streets and limited access. The parking and lack of lots for both employees of businesses like Children's Hospital and visitors is a truly a problem for residents. We love it all, but all good things in moderation, folks!
