Are you sick of my Pittsburgh related posts yet? Hopefully not, because today I have more to share with everyone! This post showcases the photographs that I captured of architecture in Downtown Pittsburgh. I noticed some pretty unique buildings while walking around. I really like buildings that have the faded painted signs like the second photo that has “roadway outdoor store” written on the front. I saw several within the downtown area, which makes me feel like they preserve history well, as simple as that seams.
The last one is the view from our hotel room Saturday morning. The building to the left is alone in the photo before the last one of our hotel. I really wanted to take a closer look to the second to last building when I saw it from our window Friday night. We ended up walking around the city in a different way to go to dinner and I came across it. It’s an apartment complex called The Pennsylvanian. It used a railroad connection that has been transformed and preserved into what appears to be a beautiful place to live and hold events.
I was pretty impressed by Pittsburgh. I feel like as a planner and an urbanite I have a connection with each city I visit and there is “energy” between me and the city. I definitely had a positive connection with Pittsburgh, but not so strong that it could be a city I call home later in life. I will definitely be back to travel more bridges, get closer to the river, and photograph more of the city I didn’t see on this short trip.
I’m traveling to another city this weekend – Cleveland! So, I should have some stuff to say about that next week on the blog. Until then, have a happy weekend 🙂
