We saw it in the day and then went back at night to see this beautiful building. At night we sat in the courtyard by the fountain watching the lights and the water. A work of Art. It is not to be missed if you go to Pittsburgh.
This beautiful building dominates the skyline in the Point State Park section of Pittsburgh. I believe it's one of the first skyscrapers of the modern age and is sight to behold. Market square is at the foot of this building so you can take it all in while enjoying food/drink.
This is a building that was made to serve as headquarters for the Pittsburg Plate Glass (PPG) company. Not surprising, glass is the prominent feature of the building, as well as the numerous glass spires. The square where the building is located features a large fountain. The building is also very impressive when seen from Mount Washington, especially at night.
While PPG Place is a fantastic glass structure worth a look-see on it's own, the immediate area of Market Square is a place to linger. Have lunch with a friend or grab a beverage and a book and stay the entire afternoon if you wish. You can even cool off in the fountain if you need to.
From the moment we spotted this on the horizon my children declared it a crystal castle and we HAD to visit. The next few hours were consumed with running in and out of the dancing fountains. a great place to just sit and people watch.
Small, but busy outdoor ice skating rink that surrounds a hugh lighted Tree. In addition the PPG buildings are all glass and the inside is beautifully decorated for the holidays.
I was there enjoying a fun evening with friends! We enjoyed the, "Santas from around the world" exhibit. It was AMAZING! We saw sooo many beautiful things! It was not only fun, but educational. A WONDERFUL thing for families to do, while in Downtown, Pittsburgh. It also happened to be a VERY warm December day! We were running around without... 更多
The glass buildings were easy to spot from blocks away as their gothic style is quite distinctive. The all-glass exterior is stunning, but not surprising for a place named after Pittsburgh Plate Glass. Not a lot to do here other than admire the architecture and some shopping. I understand there's ice skating in winter, however.
Our visit was just after Christmas, so that meant the ice rink was up. We didn't rent skates because we didn't want to use up all of our energy before the Steelers game, but it was most enjoyable watching people enjoying the ice. It was so cute when the little Zamboni came out to clean the ice. It made us... 更多
