About the map
This is a map showing the locations of still-visible remains of long-gone structures from Pittsburgh's past. Each marker includes a brief history along with historical photographs of the artifact in its original iteration. Forthcoming features include a biking tour complete with bar and food stops as well as shorter walking tours. Click here to learn more about navigating the map on your device.
Pittsburgh Remains to be Seen is a labor of love by me, Virginia Montanez, local writer, author, and historian. It began on Twitter with me wondering if something like this existed and then deciding to make it exist myself. I used a variety of sources for my research and I did my best to give photo credit where it was due. This project would not be possible without my friend Mike Woycheck, as well as all the organizations that were willing to help me with requests, including the Roberto Clemente Foundation, the Children's Museum, Phipps Conservatory, the Brady Stewart Collection, Senator John Heinz History Center, and Pittsburghers who submitted suggestions for places to include.
Any questions, comments, kudos, insults, trash talk, media requests? Do you know of an artifact that should be included on this map? Fill out this form and I'll get back to you posthaste, unless you are being mean, in which case I will get back to you never.
