Old and New
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.
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.
