Growing up, Felipe Crespo was always around areas with lots of Latin culture and diversity. When the now 29-year-old Crespo moved to Pittsburgh from Chicago, he was surprised to find a lack of Puerto Rican cultural representation.
After recognizing that he wasn’t the only one who felt detached, Crespo got to work bringing his family’s culture to the Steel City.
“It was obvious that the city was lacking Latinx diversity. I knew I couldn’t be the only one feeling like this. I saw an opportunity to open up a spot that would bring fellow Latinx people together,” Crespo said.
