Limited paper copies will be available at the Bryant Street Market, LaScola’s, Tazza D’oro, the Bryant Street Parklet, the Farmhouse and the Stanton Ave. tennis courts.

Get ready for this weekend’s festivities!

June 3 – 5: Sidewalk Chalk-a-Palooza

Decorate your sidewalks and driveways this weekend so folks can enjoy them during the Yard Sale on Sunday morning – and be sure to send pics of your creations to HPCCPgh@gmail.com so we can share them with the community! Sidewalk chalk will be available for free (while supplies last) starting on Friday morning at the following locations: 

  • Bryant Street Parklet (Bryant & N. Euclid)
  • Farmhouse Playground
  • Highland Park main entrance
  • Stanton Ave. Tennis Courts (6701 Stanton Ave)

Sunday, June 5th: Highland Park Yard Sale, starting at 9 a.m. and Bryant Street Festival, noon to 5 p.m.

The Yard Sale attracts hundreds of visitors to Highland Park and is a great way to find new treasures. Between the yard sale and Bryant Street Flea Market, we have 100 sellers registered! Sunday morning, maps will be available at 9 am on the HPCC blog and limited paper copies will be available at the Bryant Street Market, LaScola’s, Tazza D’oro, the Bryant Street Parklet, the Farmhouse, the Stanton Ave tennis courts, and hopefully we’ll have some volunteers handing them out at certain intersections. The Festival will include live music, vendors, face painting, and more! We still need a few volunteers to pass out maps and assist with the Festival. Can you help?

Seeking volunteers for this weekend’s events!

Hello Neighbors!

The HPCC is organizing two great events this weekend (June 5), but we can’t do them without you! 

  • For the Yard Sale – we need folks to hand out maps
  • For the Bryant Street Festival – we need folks to help set up, direct traffic, and clean up 

Each shift is just two hours long!  Please sign-up today so that we know we’ve got everything covered:

The loss of Jim Ferlo is felt near and far

One of the first things my new neighbors wanted to tell me about when I moved in four years ago was that we’d just had our street paved, thanks to Jim Ferlo, the former state senator who lived on the block. When the blossoms from the tall trees growing on the Fulton school property filled the air with the scent of spring, other folks nearby were quick to credit Jim for working with the school to have them planted. During the HPCC community meeting where people shared their stories about building the Super Playground, I laughed along with the gang describing Jim’s insistence on being the one who got to drive the backhoe. I remember noticing his name on the sign in the window of the building on the corner of Bryant and N. Saint Clair, noting his involvement with the team responsible for Bryant St.’s evolution.

Now that Jim has passed away, I’m learning just how much of a mark he left, not only on my block and Highland Park but across the state and beyond. I only knew him as a neighbor who was quick with a wave and happy for a short chat on the sidewalk. Our condolences to his family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who had the privilege to know him for much longer than I and who are mourning his loss.
