Allegheny county Jail

What’s this medieval-looking fortress in the midst of modern buildings?

It’s the Allegheny County Jail in downtown Pittsburgh. What else does one do when sitting in traffic on a perfectly clear sunny day?

It’s an interesting contrast, especially seen from behind when it actually is a wall that makes it look like a fortress.

  1. LOVE this view. Of course, it was a fortress. Now, just an interesting building.

    • Yes, even from the front it’s quite imposing, and considering its purpose. But it will have more character than most others for long, long time.
