The End

Another view inside the abandoned Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Pittsburgh. The Church is located in the old Larimer neighborhood in Pittsburgh, once a deteriorating area that was not really a good place to be around day or night. The neighborhood over the last two to three years has transformed quite a bit with new housing everywhere. Pittsburgh was one of four cities to receive a highly competitive Choice Neighborhoods grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2014, a huge win. As part of the grant, existing affordable apartments on the site are being replaced and additional market-rate apartments are being built. When complete, there will be a total of 334 units. It is hard to imagine how long these old structures will be standing.

Thanks for stopping!

Landmark

Unfortunately, since they are cleaning up the old Larimer neighborhood in Pittsburgh it makes getting into abandoned places a bit more difficult. The St Peter and Paul Roman Catholic church is another beauty that sits abandoned and crumbling away. Normally you can walk right inside and get treated to some great stained glass and lighting. The building was totally boarded up on our recent visit. I imagine to keep homeless out since they were cleaning up the neighborhood. There were brand new housing complexes just right across the street from this Church. We opted for a few shots outside the church then we went on our way.
