PHLF Free Friday Walking Tours: Penn-Liberty Cultural District
10/12/2018 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Katz Plaza: Corner of Penn Avenue and Seventh Street
Hear how a blighted area in downtown Pittsburgh was designated both a City and National Register Historic District and transformed into Pittsburgh's Cultural District, a 14-block area attracting more than two million people to approximately 4,000 performances, exhibits, and events each year. PHLF guides will discuss how historic buildings have been saved and renovated for the performing arts, galleries, schools, restaurants, one-of-a-kind stores, and residences - and how new construction, urban spaces, sculpture, and bike lanes have been added to the mix.
Advance reservations appreciated.
Meeting location: Katz Plaza in downtown Pittsburgh, at the corner of Penn Avenue and Seventh Street
