W

e have reserved August for our Social Spaces Issue. Last year we covered Staycays, Daycays, and Vacays, directing readers to places and spaces in the city, close to the city, and not far from the city. Just think about how important our living spaces are! SPACES are connected to our memories - We all remember WHERE we were when we found out striking news, or had a first drink, or first met that special someone. Check out our Q&A with Kris and Tara Bennett from K Bennett Development Group and Lifespace Pittsburgh. They treated HGTV fans to a pilot episode of Steel City Rehab, stay tuned for news on that! In the meantime, they are busy helping buyers find their special spaces for Memory Making… August is our last full month of time-off before schools start up again, so we’re trying to finish things on our summer to-do list, and prepare for what’s ahead. The Social Sisters are re-doing their rooms for the new year ahead, right around the same time college students are decorating their dorms or first apartments. Speaking of which – don’t miss our talk with Gregg Perelman of Walnut Capital, he develops many of the city’s newest and coolest spaces. Oh yeah.. The Social Sisters’ Room Re-do - Watch their progress on Snapchat, Insta Stories, and YouTube. Their designs revolve around Commissioned Paintings from Pittsburgh Muralist, Jeremy Raymer. Watch videos from their unveiling on YouTube. The 11th is #WorldWideArtDay, check out local artists and exhibits, and work your way out! Speaking of OUT, August is National Parks Month. If you don’t have a National Park near you, check out your city parks! We interviewed John Valentine, the director of the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation (PDCDC) for Social Soles to talk about spaces that he finds special. He is known for hosting Design Fests in outdoor spaces in Downtown Pittsburgh. August has a full calendar for the Burgh. Check out our Social Seen each month to see where we were! Last month some of our faves were PicklesBurgh (Just one of the many awesome events the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership hosts); Open

Streets; The Pgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium Summer Safari; and The National Aviary Night in the Tropics World Tour, to name a few. Check out our Social Samplings for events to hit this month: The Three Rivers Regatta, Steel City Comic Con, The Bob O’Connor Cookie Cruise, Style Week, and Party at The Pier, for starters. In Social Expectations, we are looking forward to September for Social Butterfly Magazine Junior Runway Fashion Finale’ and Happy New (School) Year Party on September 23 - we are happy to be presenting a Junior Runway Show at CAPA in the Cultural District. We will be updating you throughout the next two months, so don’t miss a thing. We are super excited. There will be a Pre-Party, Pop-Up Boutiques to Shop, After Party, and lots more… Lots of Pet Holidays this month! It’s Feeding Pets of the Homeless Week (2nd Week of Month), and International Assistant Dog Week from the 6-12. The month starts off with Dogust on the 1st; followed by Assistant Dog Day on the 7th; International Cat Day on the 8th; Spoil your Dog Day on the 10th; National Homeless Animal Day on the 19th; Take your Cat to the Vet Day on the 22; and Holistic Pet Day on the 30th!

Interview by Kiley Fischer with Introduction by Faith Bennett

JOHN VALENTINE Executive Director

T

The Social Soles interview series is based on the saying, “You don’t really know someone until you have walked in his shoes.” We thought it would be interesting to begin each interview asking our guest to bring a pair of shoes that are significant to him. They can be the pair he walked in each day in New York City; The ones he wore the day he first stepped foot in Pittsburgh; The shoes he wore as he discovered some of the city’s secrets; The pair he wore when the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation opened its doors; The ones he was wearing as projects unfolded; A pair we would have never guessed...What shoes will he bring? We associate shoes with memories: good and bad. The question steers the path of the conversation. This route will show us a side usually not seen in the one we are talking with. A more personal side. We are excited to see in which direction we are lead – by the choice in footwear and the memories stirred. Come. Let’s take a transformative walk… In August, it’s all about Social Spaces: new dorms, new apartments, new homes, or maybe just a change. With people coming and going, we wanted to talk to someone deeply connected with the spaces in downtown Pittsburgh and we found that in Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation Executive Director John Valentine. John has put in a lot of time watching downtown evolve and it’s not just the city he’s seen the change in, but himself as well.

Social Butterfly Magazine: Let’s dig in – tell me about the shoes you brought today. John Valentine: I wore these shoes because most of my life, I was in business. I had my own businesses and it was always in the pursuit of money. You get to a point where you realize that’s not what truly makes you happy. When I bought these shoes, these were a more casual, different John. It was a transformation where – don’t get me wrong, I still think money’s important for different reasons in today’s society for things like healthcare – but I feel happier giving back. That’s part of what we do here at the PDCDC. We give back. I think these shoes actually could be a symbol of the time in my life when I had that transformation. SBM: What sparked that for you? John: I’ve been in the restaurant business most of my life and part of what I did was always give back to the community. I lived in New York – I lived on 83rd and Broadway – and I loved urban living. I’m not a suburbanite in the least. I loved living in New York, but coming here was different because I felt like I could make a difference. I have this 13-year now love affair with downtown Pittsburgh. For me, it started with volunteering with the old downtown neighborhood association and being part of a group that founded this organization. It doesn’t feel like I’m doing anything, it just feels like a part of me. I don’t know if the transformation started when I moved here because I always loved urban, but the transformation in giving back and creating started when I moved here

|

and I love it. I feel like I’m a different person. SBM: That’s kind of something we hear a lot, the way Pittsburgh is kind of this different animal in terms of cities. John: I think Pittsburgh’s great. I always say this: you have people say, “Well New York’s a great city.” It is. It’s unique, it’s unbelievable, it’s gigantic. But, what actually makes a city great? I think in Pittsburgh, it’s the people. That’s the stakeholders, everybody. Everyone seems to work together, everyone seems to care. There’s a pride here that I haven’t seen. I’ve lived in three cities – Philadelphia, New York, and Pittsburgh – and I think what separates Pittsburgh from everywhere is the people. People who care, people who are just great, they’re good to work with. I think it’s a great city. SBM: What was the goal that the PDCDC was founded on and what is the work that you do, for those who aren’t familiar with the organization? John: The goal was to create a great downtown and make an 18-hour city. Before there was a PDCDC, the only people who were really creating were the Cultural Trust. The Cultural Trust is great. They don’t get the credit they deserve and they were the true pioneers. I thought there were a lot of things lacking – not from the Trust – but from other organizations we thought could fill the void. We wanted to create and 18-hour city. SBM: What are the kind of things you’re still doing now? John: We brought in a grocery store – downtown


residents were begging for a grocery store. Just last week we opened up an off-leash dog run park. One of our comprehensive projects is the 15-Minute Project. The 15-Minute Project gets its name because we want residents to walk or bike 15 minutes to get everything they need. This is a long-term plan that has three phases: conception, respite, and implementation. Conception is obviously where you conceptualize. Respite is where you gather together and move forward with phase three, implementation. There’s so many things we’re doing. There’s book clubs, dining clubs, writers groups, Third Tuesday Happy Hour. Fashion Week, of course. The Italian Festival. We’re going to do a restaurant week strictly downtown. There’s so many things. I think there’s 24 different programs. These are all amenities that not only residents but downtown business people wanted. We feel like we’re a group that’s filling that need. SBM: What is one thing you hope most that people get from what’s happening here? John: I think people look at downtown Pittsburgh right now and say it’s great. Whether it’s great or not depends on where you set the bar. I think we’ve come a really long way and done some great things, but I always tell people, “You haven’t seen anything yet.” If they can get anything from downtown Pittsburgh: compared to where we were, it’s great; compared to where we’re going, it’s going to be even greater? SBM: What’s one thing you’re most excited about moving forward? John: That’s a great question and it depends upon where you’re asking on the scale. Before I would’ve said the grocery store, now I’d say the

dog park. I think when you look at downtown Pittsburgh, we need to find more stock for residents and I think there’s a demand. I also think the day’s gonna come, and it may be five years before it’s established, where we have a retail and fashion district. I think that’s the hole in the donut right now. That would make us more vibrant. Could you picture Smithfield or Wood being open-air cafes and boutiques? That’s the vision. SBM: That sounds awesome. That is really cool. I know we’re talking about social spaces for August. What kind of spaces are there in downtown that people maybe don’t know are there? John: That’s a really good question. Anything? SBM: Anything. Those little hidden gems that even people who live here might not know about. John: I think the Winter Garden is a beautiful space – it’s all glass. It’s absolutely beautiful. You know what I’m talking about. Definitely the Winter Garden. I’ll tell you what’s cool and a lot of people don’t know this. I live in Gateway Towers and there’s underground routes you can take that people don’t know about. They don’t all

connect, so you might have to do underground and then pop up, but when the weather’s bad and I have to go to Grant Street, I can take two different underground routes that prevent me from getting soaking wet. That’s cool. SBM: That is really cool. I mean, I’ll jump the T, but I never knew there were actual foot routes. John: They’re there. When Macy’s was open, you could take an underground route to the garage, come up through Macys, cross the second floor bridge, go into the other parking lot, and go into Oxford Center. Macy’s closing messed me up, but there are others. They’re cool. SBM: I love stuff like that. John: I can cross the street, go into Fifth Avenue Place, take the bridge across Penn Avenue, take the bridge across Stanwix, go down and take the tunnel to Gateway and the only time I’m out is when I cross Liberty Avenue. It’s really cool. It’s awesome. I moved here in January and the first week I was in Pittsburgh, a friend of mine went to dinner, and 2004 it was like 1-degree. It was freezing. The wind chill was much worse. I walked out and went to dinner and walked back. I said to the door person, I’m frozen. He said, “Well where’d you go?” I said, “I went to this restaurant” and he said, “You know, you could’ve gone the underground route.” He told me all about it. SBM: That is seriously really cool and now I want to find the routes. You talking about moving here, what prompted that? Obviously New York to here is a huge difference, why Pittsburgh?

John: I was in the restaurant business and there was a group that thought they were going to redo Fifth and Forbes. They wanted our group to do a restaurant here. I decided to be the resident who came here. Winded up they didn’t get the contract and I said, “I’m going to stay here for a couple of months and enjoy,” and 13 years later here I am.

You might fall in love with another city, or you may come back and appreciate Pittsburgh more than you already do.

SBM: It’s so crazy to see how that migration happens from one place to another to another.

SBM: Definitely. Speaking of traveling, if we travel back to the shoes for a minute, if your shoes could talk, what stories would they tell? What would they say?

John: I kind of feel that in New York, you can make a difference, but it’s a lot more difficult. Here, everything just lined up for me. I looked at downtown Pittsburgh and when I moved here, everyone migrated out in the evening. It was empty. I thought, “This is Philadelphia a few years back, this is New York a few years back.” It’s almost like you had this time machine. I had this vision of what Pittsburgh could be and we’re still on the journey, but it’s been a great journey so far. I tell people, we’re not at the end, we’re at the end of the beginning. Sometimes I’ll be a little negative and tell you Pittsburghers don’t see it. Because I’ve lived in other places, sometimes I think the transplants see it more than the natives. SBM: I feel like you gain an appreciation because I know I’ve popped out of Pittsburgh a couple of times, but I always come back. There’s nothing like this place. John: I think that’s fantastic. I even tell my staff: travel. See things. You’ll come back so much more well-rounded. See other things in the world, see what other cities are doing.

SBM: That’s what happened with me. John: And you’ve learned a lot, I bet.

John: I think the story they would tell is that they’re on happy feet. I’ve learned to appreciate. I’m a people person, that’s my art. Money matters, but it’s not as much of an emphasis. I’m really enjoying people now. I think my shoes would say, “There’s a lot of happiness and satisfaction doing for others. A lot.” You can have a lot of money and something’s still missing. These shoes will say, “I think John filled that void.” SBM: I really like that. Whose shoes would you walk in if you could walk in anyone’s and experience what they’ve experienced? John: My father’s. I think the easy answers would be Jesus, Martin Luther King, Ghandi, when you see how much they gave to the world. But my father was a great man. I was lucky to have him as a mentor, someone who loved me, who

cared for me. He would use all these clichés and he used that to teach me. It was a great way to teach. His influence on me has made me the person I am. If I had to choose one person, it would be my dad. If I had to choose the people I mentioned, I think most people would like to walk in their shoes, but for me personally, it would be my dad. I miss him. SBM: There’s something about that bond, being able to see where they were coming from and what they were able to teach. John: I agree. I always say I was blessed.  For more information about the PDCDC and their programs and offerings, check out their website as well as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn.

A Fresh Approach to Lifestyle We believe that things have gotten so specialized that this hyper-focus has become an inconvenience. We suggest going back to a holistic approach: One Social Life with many dimensions. We believe that every individual has more than one interest and is part of a larger network... A college student may want to plan for a weekend date, but may also need to plan for a parent’s visit, all while drawing an activity plan for the children she babysits. She could find everything she needs all in one place: SocialButterflyMagazine.com For somewhere to go, our Social Calendar of Events; for a theme to celebrate or commemorate, one of our Special Social Calendars.

Something for EVERY age and interest.

Social Butterfly, Pseudo Celebrity Our mascot, Social Butterfly, Pseudo Celebrity – Steward of our Brand – will follow our Special Social Calendars and attend events. Fans won’t want to miss a photo op to be SEEN and SOCIAL with this Butterfly. #SocialButterflyMascot. She made her debut on the run way at Pittsburgh Fashion Week 2015 and made sure Pittsburgh was present in 2016 with Social Butterfly Magazine Fashion Week Downtown.
