RACE STREET: Radio program features Save Race Street Committee

Posted by Elwin Green on June 23, 2012 at 1:35 PM

This week's edition of "Pittsburgh Profiles," Elaine Effort's weekly program on KQV Radio, features the Save Race Street Committee.

Ms. Effort interviewed residents and G-TECH staffers on June 2, as we worked to create a raised flower bed at 7427 Race Street. She also spoke with me that evening at the Young Preservationists Association 10th anniversary celebration, where I accepted an award on behalf of the Committee, naming Race Street one of the "Top Ten Best Preservation Opportunties in the Pittsburgh Area."

"Pittsburgh Profiles" airs at 5:30 pm today and tomorrow on KQV AM 1410.

The Homewood Chronicles

Oct. 2005 - March 2010

Reports from a community in transition

In October 2005, after a bullet came through his living room window, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Elwin Green began writing "My Homewood," the first blog on the P-G's website. For 4 1/2 years, "My Homewood" shared stories of tragedy and beauty, of perplexity and hope - stories that live again in "The Homewood Chronicles."
