Johnny and I took a walk today in East Liberty and somehow ended up in Highland Park. We parked near the McDonald’s on N. Euclid Avenue and started walking among all of the various parking lots. There are a lot of lots. This doorway had a lot of things to tell passersby.
This alley had my favorite sign of the walk.
We were looking for Pittsburgh Protractors and noticed that many light poles had interesting decorations.
The side of the Farmers’ Market building had a huge pumpkin and the outline of the house that used to neighbor it.
This building sat opposite of the Home Depot and I eventually lost count of all of the orange shopping carts I saw on nearby streets.
We saw a murder of crows hanging out in the only creepy tree in the area.
We made a right on St. Marie Street and a neighbor sitting on a porch asked us if we played numbers and had any lucky ones to give him. Johnny spouted off 1-6-7-2. I hope the man won whatever game he was using them for. I asked him what neighborhood we were in and he said it was Highland Park. I hadn’t realized we were on the border of it and was surprised.
We made our way to Stanton Avenue and I wanted to walk a trail in Highland Park to get to Negley Run Boulevard. Johnny was starting to get whiny and the fence between the road and the park was neverending. Until…
If we had seen a trail there, we would have gone down but it was a pretty steep drop off. We kept going until my miserable friend won and we turned around.
We were able to walk some more streets in Highland Park/East Liberty including Carmine Way. Carmine Way was the first street I reported to Google as named incorrectly in their database. They had it listed as Carnival Way when there was already a street with that name in Allentown.
Another Home Depot Shopping cart.
After our sweaty walk, we enjoyed lunch at the Whitfield American Restaurant in the Ace Hotel. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken sandwich is delicious!
After lunch, we walked around the block and Johnny saw his first Pittsburgh Protractor!
