’” He pauses to greet Square Cafe owner Sherree Goldstein, who has appeared behind the counter. Why aren’t the diocese, the city, and the parish sitting down and saying, “Here’s what we need. ” It’s a question we don’t know the answer to, but as David hints, the answer lies within the realm of power, money and fear, instead of within the realm of heritage, preservation and compromise. He’ll be leaving the next morning to prepare for his new television series. “Maybe Vancouver,” he says, “But I’m going to make the case for it to be filmed in Pittsburgh. ” A quick hug and our late breakfast ends as I head into the surprisingly warm October sunshine in the bustling Regent Square neighborhood.
An effervescent and immediately likable woman, Sherree clearly has a friendly rapport with David. She introduces herself to me, but I have a mouth full of apples and there’s whipped cream all over my face. I ask, “If the city didn’t pull away from the lawsuit. If everything that could possibly have been done to save the church took place. David stays behind to further nurse his cup of coffee and chat with his neighborhood friends.
And it’s kind of romantic, but also, interestingly, a little fraught.
He knows Jen and Tahl, and likes them (apparently), but obviously, the four of them living together with a child is going to create some interesting situations.

I wonder aloud if Mayor John Fetterman didn’t “recruit” him to Braddock, and David tells me that’s not even close to the truth.
He was within his rights to say, ‘You can’t come to work,’ but that didn’t make it right.” Henry Clay Frick leads us down a path toward the merit of unions, and I tell David what makes me angry. He worked publically and privately to slow down the process of tearing the iconic structure down, and met with local leaders in an attempt to convince them to have a planning delay.
For instance, when turnpike toll takers are fighting for astronomical wages considering the struggle of the average American worker in this recession. He then shifts to the humorous side of things and tells me about a bumper sticker he saw: “Unions: The folks who brought you the weekend.” I have to agree. He turns his focus to Germany, where employers and workers will come to the table, so to speak, and work on a compromise that allows employees to have wonderful benefits. Not so much because he felt the arena shouldn’t be torn down, he says, but because he was fighting so that “something decent could be built in its place, so that the people of the Hill District got their fair share.” He ran out of time, though, and the arena is now a chapter of Pittsburgh’s history, as St. He takes a moment to greet another customer by name.

A quick shout at my phone’s voice recognition-capable GPS and I see I’m only 1.6 miles away from the Square Cafe.
