If you like to photography reflections, you will in love with this place. I keep on returning and have exhibited some of the images at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition.

the building that makes Pittsburgh's skyline polished off. Its 40 floors and 635 feet tall. In the winter they set up an Ice rink on the plaza in the middle of the complex

Interesting and unique area. Plate glass buildings that look like something out of a Scifi novel. In the centre is a water foundation attraction that kids loves running around in. Not an attraction to spend much time in but fun for a 30 minute refresher in the summer months

Beautiful view in and of itself but ice skating here during the winter is an absolute must! It is quite reasonably priced too!

In between the fancy shaped buildings is a square with some interesting statues. It had just started raining when I arrived but it was still a nice little place to see since we were already in the area. I wouldn't make a trip to see it specially.

Good place to walk around and look at Pittsburghs 'mondern' buildings. Make sure you take notice of the surrounding buildings reflecting in the others. Stop buy Market Square one block away. Several good resturants. Just don't eat at the las velas. Best season to go is Christmas. Best time to be in Pittsburgh is after 1-4am Christmas Day. My wife... More

Went here in the middle of the day. Some kids were playing in the fountain. Huge statue by Seward Johnson. Nice, sunny day in an open square with lots of seating.

Wow, what a building and square around. Really something to see. There are a few tables to sit outside to eat, wish we did that, but still, we took great photos...

We had a really great time skating here! The downtown area near Market Square is really pretty and they still have the Christmas tree up. I took my two older boys and one of their friends and my five year old. The cost was $50 for all of us, which was a little pricey. The kids had a fabulous time.... More
