The westernmost terminus of Forbes Avenue lies at Stanwix Street in the downtown part of the city, then runs eastward past PPG Place, directly through Market Square and then between the Courthouse and the City-County Building, past Duquesne University, through Uptown, and Oakland where it passes the University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. From Oakland, Forbes Avenue continues eastward past Carnegie Mellon University and Schenley Park, through the neighborhood of Squirrel Hill, and past Homewood Cemetery and Frick Park before it reaches its eastern terminus at Wilkinsburg.
