Nothing to do with stripping. It’s a strip of land with:
“a historic market district with many ethnic food purveyors, some art studios, antique dealers, unique boutiques, and other businesses setting up shop where trains once delivered produce by the ton. The Strip District comes alive primarily on weekends during the summer months when street vendors are selling their wares, the open-air farmer’s markets are in full swing, and party-goers sit outside and enjoy a drink.” (wikipedia)
The orig Primanti Bros sandwich shop is there. I noticed people selling what were probably bootleg CDs...T shirt shops etc.
