East Liberty: Pittsburgh’s Shining Star
Have you heard the news?
TIME Magazine has just listed East Liberty as the #1 coolest neighborhood (shared with Lawrenceville) in America right now! Read the article here.
We’re thrilled that the rest of the country is seeing what we’ve known for 50 years. Straddling Shadyside and East Liberty, Franklin West, Inc. has always been a active participant in the neighborhoods we call home. In fact, Frank West was a founding member and avid supporter in the Shadyside Action Coalition and the East Liberty Quarter Chamber of Commerce.
Believing strongly in the importance of preservation of history, architecture, and the character of a community as being a force for positive economic development from within, Frank West was also a founder of the East Liberty Valley Historical Society.
Speaking of The Historical Society, tonight (October 6th at 7:30 pm) marks the second lecture of The Society’s Fall 2017 series. Kenneth Kobus, photographer and author of Steel and Railroad History, will present Allegheny Valley: Its Industries and Railroads.
These enlightening First Friday lectures are free and open to the public, and aim to enrich the lives of the community. Make sure to follow The Society’s Facebook page to stay up-to-date with local events and educational articles published.
To this day, we strongly support these local grassroots organizations. Their continued efforts are a big reason why others are seeing what we already know. We think it’s really cool, too!
We urge all those who live, work, and play in any of Pittsburgh’s many cool neighborhoods to take pride in being a part of the preservation of local charm!
