Spring Garden and East Deutschtown Rediscovered
From Spring Garden, Jean Binstock led a bus and walking tours of the Spring Garden and East Allegheny-Deustchtown neighborhoods in June. The tour included stops at Heinz Lofts, Neu Kirche Contemporary Arts Center, and Wigle Whiskey and featured a free picnic lunch and discussion sessions. More than 70 people took part in the tour, learning about the history, characteristics, and potential future for their neighborhoods.
“We’ve had a lot of discussion in our neighborhoods about history and the negative impact of the demolition caused by highway development,” said project leader Jean Binstock. “We wanted to heighten community awareness of the future potential of the neighborhoods.”
