Start/End Point: Madeleine Bakery & Bistro (609 S Trenton Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15221)
All architecture, photography, and social media fans are welcome to join Instagram’s Houses of Pittsburgh (@housesofpittsburgh) and the AIA Young Architects Forum (@yafpgh) for a joint meet-up to explore the neighborhood of Wilkinsburg. Madeleine Bakery & Bistro will serve as the start and end point for the neighborhood stroll, and will graciously be offering a 15% discount to those who mention the meet-up.
The meet-up group will follow a route around the neighborhood (see route map link) and snap exterior and streetscape photos as inspiration strikes. Taking in the history and happenings of WIlkinsburg, the walking route will pass by points of interest like PHLF restoration projects, homes featured in the Wilkinsburg Vacant Home Tour, historical mansions, and chats with local artists including Dee Briggs (behind the The House of Gold project). The event and route also coincide with the WCDC Two-Way Street Fest on Wood Street.
Please note: this event is a casual walking tour for those looking to explore the neighborhood and not a guided tour of home interiors.
