What’s Left of the Manchester Bridge

The Manchester Bridge connected the Point with the North Side until 1969. When it was taken down, it left one looming black stone pier on the North Shore. After it had loomed for decades, architect Lou Astorino came up with the idea of transforming it into a memorial for Fred Rogers, with a colossal statue by Robert Berks framed by an oval cutout. Here we see the pier from across the river in Point Park.

A Lot of Bridges

West End Bridge

Above: the West End Bridge over the Ohio, with the Ohio Connecting Railroad Bridge behind it, and the McKees Rocks Bridge behind that. Below, the Allegheny, with the Fort Duquesne Bridge, the Three Sisters, the Fort Wayne railroad bridge, the Veterans Bridge, and the Sixteenth Street Bridge. For extra credit, see if you can point out the Twenty-Eighth Street Bridge. (Click on the picture to make it very big.)
