Description:
North Point Breeze (or Point Breeze North) is a neighborhood in the East End of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It has a zip code of 15208, and representation on Pittsburgh City Council by the council member for District 9 (Northeast Neighborhoods).

The neighborhood contained the residence of the entrepreneur George Westinghouse, the site of which has been converted into Westinghouse Park as well as the residence of Henry J. Heinz. The H.J. Heinz property was subdivided into residential lots after the mansion was knocked down, but the original carriage house was converted into an apartment building and remains standing on what is now Meade Place. Also, the stone wall that stood at the perimeter of the original Heinz estate remains standing.

Both of John Edgar Wideman's memoirs, Brothers and Keepers and Hoop Roots, use North Point Breeze's Westinghouse Park as a setting, as does his fictional Homewood Trilogy.

Due to North Point Breeze's small area, it is also sometimes referred to contiguously with south Point Breeze, with Penn Avenue dividing the neighborhood, as simply "Point Breeze". More commonly, however, it is considered as part of Homewood.
