. East Hills is home to the Imani Christian Academy which is based in the former East Hills Elementary school building. East Hills was once home to a flourishing shopping center that was the farthest point for citizens of Pittsburgh's East End to shop and work. However Due to crime and other issues the Shopping center went into decline in the 80's and utterly vanished by the turn of the 21st century. The entire shopping center is now empty and overrun with weeds and debris.
