21 Nov 11 Construction Intervention: The Blarney Stone

Forty years ago, the Blarney Stone, a family owned Irish bar, opened its doors in the Financial District to much success. But, after the death of the Keane family patriarch and 9/11, business has suffered, leaving brothers Teddy and Joe struggling to carry on the family business. Now, after 40 years of wear and tear, The Blarney Stone desperately needs renovation in order to attract the new wave of young residents living in the Financial District. However, renovation has been out of the question and the bar is literally disintegrating around them! A construction intervention would resurrect the spirit of the Blarney Stone and bring in new customers to this much loved neighborhood institution. When someone new walks in, they almost immediately walk out because nearly everything is original from 1969! From the barely functioning steam table to the cracked tile floor, the kitsch of this bar is killing its revenue. Although these troubles haven’t stopped loyal regular customers from enjoying great food and cheap drinks, the grungy appearance has hindered the flow of new clientele that Joe and Teddy need to make up for the loss of business they suffered after 9/11. While the brothers try their best to keep profits up, they are barely making ends meet and fear losing the family business that was their father’s pride and joy. Nearly everything could use a facelift. The floors are dingy, the ceiling tiles are mismatched and water damaged, the air conditioning ducts leak, the

Frayne was inspired to create the Windbelt after a visit to a village in Haiti where residents rely on costly kerosene and diesel for lack of an electrical grid.

Check out this link of a 1970 Film of this exact location to see how coke was manufactured! Today Enjoy a tour of the last great coke oven operations located in Shoaf Pennsylvania, south of Uniontown. This 200 oven operation closed for good in 1972 due to not meeting EPA standards. So ended a 100 year history of coke manufacturing in Southwestern PA. This operation could be a wonderful walking tour if not for the fact that what is under it is too valuable for the owners to turn over to tourism (a coal seam) Too Bad. Enjoy the best examples of complete coke ovens, with rails still in place for “larry cars” to load the coal through a trunnel hole in the top, rails running along the front of the ovens to allow the “mud car” to assist the mudders who would block up the opening for a 36 or 72 hour coke charge, the Railroad “Wharf” still intact between two banks of ovens that allowed the workers to easily deposit the cooked coke and send north to Pittsburgh. To realize what workers did for so little (often a a day or worse–paid in company store scrip), a dirty, life shortening existance, which supported their families, is quite a humbling experience. Visit and the Coal and Coke Heritage Museum, located at Penn State University, Fayette Campus US 119 South, Uniontown, PA.
