situated 3 blocks from the junction of fifth and penn avenues in pittsburgh's east end and built as a utility barn circa 1880, the multi-unit/multi-use PointBreezeway structure has seen ongoing incarnations. the ideal location, along with its urban-cottage architecture, has helped it to remain a "community corner" of neighborhood activity for over a century!
the current "PointBreezeway" has housed families, a tavern (then speakeasy!) a family grocery market, a tea room, antique and boutique sales, massage therapy, steve and sheila weiner's "the prop shop", as well as artist steve hankin's painting place and studio.
proximate to lovely point breeze homes, the new church and pittsburgh sterrett schools, st. bede parish, the frick art and historical center, the frick park lawn bowling greens, homewood cemetery, reynolds motors, as well as the beloved frick park market (once operated by local legends bob and ron fuchs), the PointBreezeway is occupied by business owner lauren mcmillen, her husband james and their twin boys, miles and leopold.
since 2000 c.e., the big, old, two-and-a-half story, white house at the corner of reynolds street and leroi road has hosted educational classes, literary and conversational salons, musical concerts, public service events, weddings and receptions, gatherings for fun and fund-raising, private meetings, along with board meetings of the neighborhood's point breeze organization.
