I just curious if anyone can tell what Feltonville is like these days. My grandparents used to live on the 100 block of East Wyoming Ave. It's been over 20 years since I was there. We used to visit every year when I was a kid growing up in Pittsburgh.

Is it improving/staying the same, or what?

Thanks!

Sad to say it has declined alot within the last 20 to 25 years. The area has suffered white flight and rising crime. However it is very diverse with immigrants from many countries which is one of the few positive aspects. I wish I can give you better news.

Thank you for the update. When my mother and aunt settled my grandparents' estate in the late 80's, I think a family from Laos bought the house.
