North Side Story II

Just noting the news today about some new commercial developments on the North Side. Last week I poked at the serious counterfactural North Side (Development) Story that is now mostly forgotten except by those focused on preservation history. 

Just a gratuitous extra aerial view of the North Side circa 1954, also from the North Side Study of 1954.

The building in the upper right corner of that photo appears to be the same as the very modern looking one in this super high resolution shot of the North Side circa 1910. Just another data point for pin-pointing the soon to be buried base paths of Exposition Park.

And just because the pitchers and catchers are packing their bags for Bradenton this weekend, here's a little video made with that still, with a modern ending.

Holy "gentrification" Batman. Nakama at Federal North?! Dang. This definitely is NOT your father's Pittsburgh.
