Extending from the Monongahela River to Liberty Avenue, Grant Street is Downtown’s grand civic boulevard, featuring a mix of historic landmarks and modern skyscrapers, a diversity of uses, and a tree-lined median. This tour focuses on the section from 6th to 4th Avenues, taking in exceptional work by Henry Hobson Richardson, Frederick Osterling, Henry Hornbostel, Rafael Guastavino, and Daniel Burnham. It also provides a primer on Pittsburgh’s history from 1758 to the early 20th century and reveals Henry Clay Frick’s enormous influence on this section of Grant Street.
