Where in the Patch?!

Do you know where this local landmark is?

Where was this photo taken? Be specific.

It's in either Baldwin Borough, Baldwin Township or Whitehall Borough. But don't bother looking in our directory this time; the photo's not there!

We will reveal the answer in a few days.

Fancy a guess? Tell us in the comments section below.

Robert Edward Healy, III December 10, 2012 at 09:30 PM
Ah, Hays is part of Pittsburgh.
NE12Ukid December 10, 2012 at 09:31 PM
Meant the part of Baldwin by Hays.
michael December 10, 2012 at 09:31 PM
That is in Baldwin. Right across the street from Eat n' Park. Catty corner from that is Whitehall.
Robert Edward Healy, III December 10, 2012 at 09:35 PM
Ah, I see.

Michael that makes good sense, that IS another overgrown junky area that needs to be cleaned up. That would be Streets Run @ Rt. 51, right? Think you got it!
michael December 11, 2012 at 01:11 PM
Yes. That's where the Sleepy Hollow Motel sign used to be also.
Margaret French December 11, 2012 at 01:24 PM
I don't think that is where it is because it wouldn't be 20 mph there. I just can't figure out where it is. Is this a recent photo Bob?

Margaret, I have to agree with you there.
Robert Edward Healy, III December 11, 2012 at 02:42 PM
It is. Dec. 3, 2012.

Could this be the part of Streets Run by the old Office Lounge? This is a crap hole that looks similar to the crap hole in the picture. However, this could also be a Streets Run sign that was placed in another area to throw off residents...... Robert, did you steal this sign and place it in Green Ghettos or Skyline Drive or better yet, Prospect Puke?? haha lol. I am being facetious of course. Those places are real crap holes but there is no Streets Run Road sign there that I or Uncle Helix notice. Happy Christmas all!

This is on the corner of Rt 51 and Streets Run across from Eat'n park where the old "Bruce's Motel" sign used to be (that shows my age). And, that is not a speed sign of 20 mph. It is actually a state maintenance route sign that has the 20 on it.
Margaret French December 11, 2012 at 07:55 PM
I think Sassafras is closer to the right guess than anyone. I thought the same as you Sasafras...that someone put the sign somewhere else. LOL I still don't see how it is the corner of 51 and Streets Run.
NE12Ukid December 11, 2012 at 08:37 PM
I think Michael got it right first. You'd see this if coming up the hill on Streets Run toward Rt. 51, as said, across from EatNPark. Can't think of anything right by Thee Olde Place that looks like this. Oh well, just goes to show how observant we often are NOT when passing familiar places.
Margaret French December 12, 2012 at 05:23 AM
I guess Michael did get it right. I am not driving down there to look LOL I will wait for Bob to answer.
Margaret French December 12, 2012 at 12:26 PM
I don't know what it is but something is still making me think it is not at 51 and Streets Run. Something doesn't seem right for it to be there.
Margaret French December 12, 2012 at 12:46 PM
Wherever it is, it is a dangerous place to be standing taking a photo! Especially if it is at Rt. 51.
NE12Ukid December 12, 2012 at 01:06 PM
If it is where I think it is, you could snap the photo from your car easily. Only other place that makes me think of would be over at E.Willock Rd. Maybe that's it.
Margaret French December 12, 2012 at 01:53 PM
Do you mean where Prospect meets Streets Run? For some reason it doesn't seem like there either. That looks like Eat N Park in the background but something about the angle doesn't seem right. I don't usually come from that direction though. I remember seeing an old rusty sign like that but I can't remember where. OMG Bob! Tell us soon! LOL
Diane Mead Smith McCallum December 12, 2012 at 02:02 PM
I passed this sign last night. Plain as day on the corner of rt 51 and Sts Run. on the corner of old Bruce's motel. It couldn't be more obvious.
cc December 12, 2012 at 02:07 PM
Diane have to agree with you there, I passed this place this morning heading up on Streets Run Road to get to rt 51.
Robert Edward Healy, III December 12, 2012 at 03:11 PM
Without further ado, this picture was indeed taken while I was waiting at a red light at the intersection of Streets Run Road and Route 51 on the border of Baldwin and Whitehall boroughs. The sign is located across the street from Eat'n Park, which you can kind of see in the background. I did not move the sign there myself (ha!) but was surprised to see it there in such disrepair. I never noticed it before and thought that it, of course, would make a perfect "Where in the Patch?!" participant.
NE12Ukid December 12, 2012 at 07:28 PM
Yes, indeed! So Michael WINS the million dollar prize! haha.
