Fifth Avenue by the Numbers
Fifth Avenue by the Numbers visits sites once used by Pittsburgh’s numbers gambling barons. Numbers arrived in Pittsburgh in the mid-1920s and took hold in the Hill District. The Uptown sites featured in this tour include places where numbers bankers, writers, and runners worked, played, dined, and lived. These gambling entrepreneurs helped make numbers an iconic part of Pittsburgh’s informal economy and social history for most of the twentieth century.
