Sorry but North Carolina has no old money. It was a cracker-squatter state back in the day lying forlornly between two haughty aristocratic slave-owning neighbors (Va. and S.C.). North Carolina may have new money and new money neighborhoods but they don’t call North Carolinians tarheels for nothing.

Nice selection! I’m guessing the Mt Vernon and Bolton Hill buildings you show were built for wealthy people (whether new or old money I don’t know) but occupied now by middle-class professional types rather than real money. Whereas the Roland Park and Guilford scenes are textbook cases of old money neighborhoods— winding roads, houses way back from the street often hidden, everything private, zero public space...

Pittsburgh doesn't have much "old money". The first time I heard that term was when I was in college (in Pittsburgh) from the Philadelphia students. Andrew Carnegie lived in NYC. The Heinz family does live there to this day I believe, but in general, Pittsburgh is a working-class town. I frankly find the term "old money" off-putting and condescending to those with "new money" or "old money".

Wouldn’t areas of Pittsburgh like Squirrel Hill and Shadyside be viewed as “old money” neighborhoods though?

Gorgeous- especially the first examples. It reminds me a bit of some neighborhoods in St.Louis which I consider pretty much domestic architecture nirvana. The last one though strikes me as new money, with ridiculous sized lawns and standard McMansion architecture.

Yeah. I have no idea what she's talking about.

The trees make streetviews difficult, but these are some Old Money areas of Pittsburgh:

https://www.google.com/maps/place/52...!4d-79.9366276

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.4497...7i13312!8i6656

https://www.google.com/maps/place/62...!4d-79.9436767

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.4477...7i13312!8i6656

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.4466...7i13312!8i6656

https://www.google.com/maps/@40.4406...7i13312!8i6656

The first couple of streetviews have walkscores in the 80s and 90s.

A lot of Shadyside and Squirrel Hill is subdivided into apartments, and was even when "she" was there way back when. Heck, even when my father's family lived in their ancestral home in Squirrel Hill, they rented out rooms to college students.

You don't have to go back THAT far to find old money neighborhoods.
