NEIGHBORHOODS OF THE ALLE-KISKI VALLEY
by George Guido

What local neighborhood was number one on a Nazi hit list? 

Which one disappeared when construction of a damn flooded it into extinction? 

From the much-loved Lincoln Beach to Birdville, the stories are as varied as the people who inhabited them. 

What community is known as the site of one of the nation’s worst mining disasters. 
Where did Nellie Bly, the world famous feminist and first female war correspondent come of age? 
Who won the annexation battle between Lower Burrell and New Kensington?
What technological wonder occupied the land where the Heights Plaza and Highlands High School now stand?
Which is likely the oldest neighborhood in the Alle-Kiski Valley?

The neighborhoods outlined in this book have a rich and unique history, some dating back to the time when the rivers were the main mode of transportation. Many are towns and villages that grew around the coal industry or other industries. Some, like Johnetta and Charlesville, have disappeared, some are still thriving, and others have been repurposed. All have a flavor and a history that sets them apart.
