No Parking

Just got back from a walk around the South Side and realized that half of the photos I snapped had to do with ‘No Parking’. And while ‘No Parking’ is a hassle for Pittsburgh suburbanites flooding the South Side on the weekends, it’s a way of life for us residents. We deal. Continue reading

Steel City Artist Collective

While City Creative will be heading to NYC this weekend for ICFF, there’s plenty to do back here in the Burgh. Steel City Artist Collective will be having their first exhibition tonight and tomorrow. SCAC, a group of over 20 artists, will be holding the show at 2700 Jane St in the Southside.

From SCAC:

“We feel art is an important aspect of our culture today and hope events like this will further cultivate creativity in our community,” says Denman Rooke, one of the founding members of the collective. The artists involved range from professional to amateur and work in a variety of media. Works on display will include drawings, paintings, prints, and photography, as well as video, sculpture, and installation. Each artist will be exploring the theme “something from nothing.” Many works will be on sale. Continue reading

Urban Camo Parking Space

Do you see it?…I’m so glad I just took a walk outside. Otherwise I would have missed the greatest urban camouflage parking space in Pittsburgh history. Does anyone have any idea who owns this vehicle? If so, give them a pat on the back for the amount of effort it took to hide their car. Pretty impressive. Why they are hiding their car, I have no idea…and may not even want to know. But in my opinion, the last place I’m going to “hide” my car is in a dilapidated alley in the South Side. Continue reading

That’s it for Neville Ice Arena

Already beleaguered by it’s roof collapse from Snowmageddon , The abandoned Neville Ice Arena in the South Side met it’s final demise early Sunday morning as a 3-alarm fire broke out around 2:30 am. We walked up the street Sunday to check out the damage, and it’s safe to say that it’s well beyond any chance of future development now. It was already a mess from years of use from squatters, drug dealers, graffiti artists and vandals. It’s a shame that what was once the Pittsburgh Penguins old practice facility is now nothing more than rubble. Hopefully the city can now turn it into a park or something useful. Continue reading
