Now's the time to become a member of Hidden City as we head to Fishtown for an adaptive reuse doubleheader!

First, we’ll visit with Krista and Steve Yutzy-Burkey of PlayArts, who will talk about the process of transforming the public bath house into a daycare center. Dennis Carlisle wrote about its history in the Hidden City Daily, and Mike Bixler later took a look at plans for its restoration.

Hidden City project director Pete Woodall will fill us in with details on the site’s history and provide some historic context along the walk to our second destination. We'll end the tour at Everybody Hits, where we’ll talk with owner David Gavigan about the adaptive reuse project and maybe stay to hit some balls. Rachel Hildebrandt wrote about Everybody Hits Batting Cages making its home in a 19th century market turned movie theater way back in 2012.

Starting point: PlayArts, 1241 N. Front St.
Ending point: Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave. the Lansdowne Theater at 31 N Lansdowne Ave, Lansdowne, PA. Tour time: approximately 1.5-2 hours
