The North Side is a major cultural and business center of the City of Pittsburgh, it is rich in history, and is imbued with a strong sense of community.
The NorthSide/NorthShore Chamber of Commerce’s (NS/NSCC) mission is to help all our local businesses succeed while keeping our neighborhoods viable and strong.
Established in 1897, the NS/NSCC began helping merchants at the turn of the century in the North Side Market District and today still remains dedicated to meeting the needs of businesses on the North Side.
