Creative Conditions on Penn Avenue

Creative Conditions on Penn Avenue

2011

We also want to track the conditions that creative workers need to thrive. The conditions we will track along Penn Avenue are places to assemble, places where creative work is shown (both of which are also known as third places) and places where creative work is made. This map will be updated by periodic visual surveys of the neighborhood.

Why these indicators? Studies have shown that third places are anchors of community life outside of home and work. Examples of third places include coffee shops, book stores, churches and social clubs.

The above map is based on data from cityLAB's April 2012 survey of the 6% Place. Have a place to add? Email us at maps@citylabpgh.org.
