Beechview Community Center

A commercial building like a thousand others in the city, but nicely restored, with attractively varied brickwork and a subtle polychrome scheme to pick out the details of the trim. Because old Pa Pitt happened to be out for a walk in the neighborhood, we get to see it from all angles.

In most cities you can ask how many floors a building is and get a reasonable answer. In Pittsburgh, that’s a complicated question.
