|Lansing Street (until 1926)|
This street was originally named Lansing Street when it was opened in 1926. Four months later, it was renamed Sunrise Avenue to fix the duplication with Lansing Way in Stanton Heights. The name may have been inspired by the street's location in the far eastern part of the city of Pittsburgh. Bob Regan includes "Sunrise" in a list of astronomy-related street names.
