Brookline was settled in the mid-eighteenth century as a farming community along Pioneer Avenue, a state road from Pittsburgh to Washington. The West Liberty Development Company and the opening of the Liberty Tunnels, in 1924, helped this Pittsburgh neighborhood grow. The area became a choice locale for city workers and others to settle. It is also the home and birthplace of many notable persons, including basketball phenomenon Suzie McConnell and radio legend Craig Porky Chedwick. Today, Brookline is Pittsburgh s second largest neighborhood, boasting character, charm, and convenience."
