A terrific guide, indispensable for first-time visitors and long-time residents alike. What a pleasure it is, to see more of what's right in front of us and to know more about what we see. Whirlwind Walk delivers Pittsburgh. --Holly Brubach, author, screenwriter, and design consultant Updated and expanded due to popular demand, Whirlwind Walk is the first fully-illustrated comprehensive walking tour guidebook to many of the principal buildings and public spaces in downtown Pittsburgh. The tour begins at H. H. Richardson's Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail and ends at Point State Park-the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers and the 18th-century Gateway to the West. The clearly marked tour route features 46 entries describing 84 places. The book also includes brief essays on the architectural significance and character of the region, a list of "Downtown Museums and More," and a new section on "What's Green Downtown?"
