The Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Station (now the Grand Concourse Restaurant in Station Square Plaza) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a building from 1898. Into the 1960s the station was a hub station for the passenger rail operations of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.

Los Angeles takes pride in having been the first major American city devoted to the automobile. For at least half of its history, all development on Wilshire Boulevard was designed to support the explosion of travel by car and as a result for decades Wilshire Boulevard was a low-rise district, with drive-throughs and short advertising billboards aimed at capturing the attention of the new motorist. Today, skyscrapers are taking over and most new construction looks like this. BTW, all photos from now on are being processed in PhotoNinja - I think it is an improvement! Thank you again, MM.

The mural on the wall has been there for awhile, at least a year but when I saw it this time someone had added those tires tossing them over and onto a street sign. The orange and white construction barrier adds a matching touch of orange to the assemblage.
Grand Concourse - The Bronx
The blue Yankee Stadium letters over the main gate are the same letters that first appeared there in white in the early 1960s.
The original Yankee Stadium, located at East 161st Street and River Avenue, served as the home baseball park of Major League Baseball's New York Yankees from 1923 to 1973 and, after extensive renovations, from 1976 to 2008. Nicknamed "The House that Ruth Built", it was the first three-tiered sports facility in the United States and one of the first baseball parks to be given the lasting title of stadium. Yankee Stadium hosted 6,581 Yankees regular season home games, and 37 World Series during its 85-year history. Yankee Stadium was the home of the National Football League's New York Giants from 1956-1973, before they relocated ultimately to Giants Stadium in the Meadowlands, including the 1958 NFL championship game, and other short-lived professional football franchises including the three incarnations of the AFL's New York Yankees (1926, 1936-37, 1941), the AAFC's New York Yankees (1946-49), the NFL's New York Yanks (1950-51). It hosted three papal masses--Pope Paul VI (1965), Pope John Paul II (1979), and Pope Benedict XVI (2008); thirty championship prizefights--including Joe Louis-Max Schmeling and Muhammad Ali-Ken Norton; two professional soccer franchies--the USA/NASL's New York Generals (1967-68) and the NASL's New York Cosmos (1971, 1976); and college football--including the annual Notre Dame-Army game from 1925 through 1947.
The Yankees had shared the Polo Grounds with the New York Giants since 1913, but strained relations between the two teams led owners Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Huston and Jacob Ruppert to build their own stadium on a 10-acre lumberyard within sight of Coogan's Bluff. Originally designed by Osborn Engineering and built by the White Construction Company at a cost of $2.5 million, the stadium opened on April 18, 1923, with the Yankees beating the Boston Red Sox 4-1. By the late 1960s, the stadium's condition had badly deteriorated. After the stadium was purchased by the City of New York in 1972, it closed for a two-year facelift following the 1973 season, with the Yankees taking up temporary residence at Shea
Stadium in the interim. The renovations by Praeger-Kavanaugh-Waterbury significantly altered the appearance of the stadium. 118 columns reinforcing each tier of the grandstand were removed, the Stadium's roof, including its distinctive 15-foot copper frieze, was replaced by a new upper shell, and a white painted concrete replica of the frieze was added atop the wall encircling the bleachers. The Stadium's playing field was lowered and shortened, with the monuments once in play relgated to a newly created Monument Park.
In 2006, the Yankees began construction on a new $1.8 billion stadium in adjacent public parkland, which opened with the 2009 season. The final game at the stadium was held on September 21, 2008, with the Yankees beating the Baltimore Orioles 7-3.
In 2007, Yankee Stadium was ranked #84 on the AIA 150 America's Favorite Architecture list.

(this is an oldie, but an old favorite...)
that's what you say when you do a long-exposure shot with the holga and hold down the shutter, according to my friend mike. so there i stood on the vanderbilt steps at grand central, resting the holga on the wide marble ledge as some tourists looked on, whispering "i love you i love you i love you."
given my deep, abiding affection for this building, it seemed more than apt. and it works as a title, too, because this is, hands down, one of my favorite photos i've ever taken. i know it's a trite subject, really, and it's been done a million times -- but not by me. so, yay me.
The former Pittsburgh and Lake Railroad Station and Station Square are seen on a Spring evening.
Station Square is located on the South shore of the Monongahela River in the City of Pittsburgh. It was designed to resemble an old railroad station and houses many retail shops and restaurants. The former Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Station can be seen on the left and is now home to the Grand Concourse restaurant.
Mount Washington can be seen in the background. Mount Washington is a city skyline photographers dream as it rises high above the Monongahela River and provides incredible views of downtown Pittsburgh.
