In North Side, plans for empty lot spark push for new historic district from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“The Historic Review Commission has recommended to City Council a new historic district: Lemmon Row — eight almost-identical houses with a missing tooth on the odd side of the 1400 block of Buena Vista Street.  The row, built by Thomas Lemmon in 1868, lies one block north of the city-designated historic Mexican War Streets, which is characterized by late 19th century homes in the central North Side.”
