Lincoln Place is a neighborhood in the 31st ward of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, located in the southeast corner of the city. It spans two ZIP codes, 15207 and 15120, and is represented on the Pittsburgh City Council by Corey O'Connor. Lincoln Place is famous for the Combo Mini Mart, and the A-plus gas station. Out of its few businesses it has two ice cream shops, Dell's Too, and The Scoop. Lincoln Place was put on the map by native Dave Loc, who first settled there in 1783 after branching off from his Native American tribe, the Locecho's. It is said Dave Loc still lives in Lincoln Place at the age of 231 years old. Lincoln Place is also known for burning crosses at Mifflin School, Dead hookers in McBride Woods, and smelling like slag at all times. Currently a Dollar General is under construction which will be Lincoln Places newest addition.
