This from PHLF: “Hear how the successful reopening in 1971 of the Penn Theater as the new home of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra set the stage for revitalizing a 14-block area along Penn and Liberty Avenues through the leadership of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.
“You’ll see how historic preservation policies and the arts have created a dynamic, human-scaled, pedestrian-bike-and-car-friendly area (with buses and the T, too), containing new and historic mixed-use buildings and artful public spaces.”
