A note on our coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic: Local events are still scarce as we come out of the pandemic and news is fairly light. In light of that, Print will remain monthly for the time being. The most recent edition was published on June 17. The next issue is planned for July 15. If that changes, we will let you know in this space here and on our Facebook page. Thanks for sticking with us. Our plan is to keep slowly publishing as we emerge from this pandemic. Please be safe and healthy.
Preservation Pittsburgh files for historic status for Engine Co. No. 28 - The Shadyside firehouse, which once had a pool in the basement is now the Emergency Medical Services headquarters. After the city proposed wrapping the historic limestone firehouse in East Liberty in a metal skin, Preservation Pitsburgh has proposed designating the Shadyside building as historic to protect it from a similar renovation. Find out more about what's happening in the East End by picking up Print at one of our retailers. Never miss another issue by subscribing to Print today.

Ed Gainey stands on the cusp
of an historic win
State Rep. Ed Gainey unseated incumbent Mayor Bill Peduto in the Democratic Primary.
In a conversation with Print, Gainey said he is not taking a win for granted and running hard for the fall election. In the fall he may face one or more candidates who still have not declared, including Tony Moreno, a retired police officer who ran in the Democratic primary, but gained enough write-in votes in the Republican primary to accept the nomination.
See the full story in the May 13 edition of Print.
Local residents sue Uber for ADA violation
Paul O'Hanlon and three other Pittsburgh residents filed a class action suit against Uber. The company tried to get the claim tossed out of court because its terms of service require arbitration, but the plaintiffs never agreed to those terms, since the company does not have the wheel chair accessible vehicles they need to get around. Their case is that the company violates the Americans With Disabilities Act and a federal Appeals Court agreed they can sue.

Artists who exhibited their work at the “Shadyside Other Arts Festival on Walnut Street” at the end of May showed a lot more color in their work than they used before the pandemic.
