The Great Mexican War Streets Yard Sale

The annual Mexican War Streets Neighborhood Wide Yard Sale is Saturday, June 1 from 9AM-2PM! Stroll one of Pittsburgh's best historic neighborhoods, buy some new treasures, and chow down on delicious food truck fare! Last year, more than 60 homes participated and 2,000 people attended. It’s always a fun treasure hunt.

MWSS residents living within the boundaries of North Ave to Jefferson St. & Brighton Road to Arch St., start cleaning out your basements! If you live within the MWS boundaries and want to make some cash selling your stuff, register here so you can be listed on our interactive and printed maps! We'd also encourage you to reach out to your neighbors to see if they are interested in selling as well--the more sellers on a given street, the more likely shoppers will flock to your street! We have unprecedented interest in this event, so you're sure to make more than a few bucks from your old stuff!

We will also have lots of food and service vendors set up at yard sale headquarters on lower Buena Vista. This year, we have:

Allegheny City Brewing
BRGR - Pittsburgh
Dad's Pub & Grub
War Streets Brewery / Bier's Pub
Shua Potter - Acting Officiant
Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse & Whiskey Garden
Threadbare Cider and Mead
Mezza Luna Cafe
Ambiance Hair & Nail Gallery
412 Brewery
Cooper's Cutz
Refucilo Wine

It’s going to be a GREAT event!

Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh Presentation
7:00 PM19:00

Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh Presentation

The MWSS and the Allegheny City Central Association will jointly host members of Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh (RP3) for a presentation on the Norfolk Southern Pittsburgh Vertical Clearance Project (PVCP). Please join us on Monday, April 22, 7pm-9pm, at Alphabet City to learn more about how this project will affect us all.

The presentation is titled "Norfolk Southern - Dirty, Dangerous, and In Your Backyard" and will provide comprehensive information about the PVCP including the health impact of black carbon diesel pollution on those living within the high risk zone, and the dangers of running double-stacked trains alongside oil cars through densely populated city neighborhoods.

RP3 will also cover the railroad’s involvement in the expansion of the petrochemical industry, and how to
use cameras/monitors to gather baseline information. Here is a flyer with more information--please send to your family and friends who may be affected!

See RP3's new website for more details, and follow them on Twitter at @NoRailPollution and on Facebook
