New! Cultural District Update

James M Singleton takes point-and-shoot camera snapshots of major changes in Downtown Pittsburgh which can include construction, restorations and renovations; along with updates from the Pittsburgh Cultural District.


Here are James' latest updates of the Tower at PNC Plaza, Gardens at Market Square and the Pittsburgh Cultural District.

Over 30 buildings have been removed from the places of interest list in order to reduce the number of links on the page to follow the Google Webmaster Guidelines. This goes against my inclusive plan but, this is not a link farm.

During May 2015, images will continue to be updated/upgraded to the new 1200px by 675px size. Progress will depend on weather conditions.

This is not a photography website so images will be of low quality to load faster. Therefore, watermarking isn't needed and theft isn't a big issue.

Point State Park was added to the list. The image showing now has a Rubber Duck in Pittsburgh background.

A Downtown Pittsburgh Dog Park and EQT Plaza renovation are projects that James M Singleton is also watching. The Dog Park in Downtown Pittsburgh is still on the wish-list.

The Roberto Clemente Bridge Bike Lane is open.


Pittsburgh Skyline and Night Skyline images were not updated this year.

Mellon Square restoration has been completed and the Downtown Pittsburgh Penn Avenue Bike Lane is ready.

James is not testing the Windows 10 Technical Preview at this time because of an upgrade to this web page. Downtown Pittsburgh images are being enlarged to 1200px by 675px and there will be many additions, deletions and updates during the Spring and Summer of 2015.
