It’s Official: 446 Bridges
Often called "The City of Bridges", Pittsburgh has more bridges than any other city, including Venice, Italy. This is the definitive book on Pittsburgh’s bridges by the same duo that brought you The Steps of Pittsburgh. The bridges are architectural and engineering marvels, soaring over rivers and valleys and contributing to the city’s unique sense of place. The book honors them all and includes 150 contemporary and historical photos, tour maps, and historical drawings, along with detailed tables including The Big List identifying each and every bridge in the count.
Includes ten self-guided tours for walkers, cyclists, drivers, and boaters.
