An article on cityLAB’s Six Percent Place was published today in the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
Bill Zlatos reported;
“CityLAB (is targeting) the Penn Avenue Arts Corridor — a mile-long stretch of galleries and art attractions between Mathilda Street and Negley Avenue. When the corridor was created 15 years ago, the goal was to tie its neighborhoods of Garfield and Friendship together. Garfield, however, still is lined with vacant and shuttered buildings and has the lowest proportion of college graduates in the city — less than 5 percent.
“We’re going to figure out what’s (needed) to make this a better place for everyone,” Picker said.”
