Now a upscale restaurant, the Grand Concourse at Station Square used to be the main train/ railway station of the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad (P&LE), which was chartered in 1873. Construction began in 1877 on a rail line connecting Pittsburgh to Youngstown. In 1879, the P&LE officially opened for commercial traffic and later became known as the Little Giant for the amount of tonnage that it moved.

By 1970, passenger traffic stopped using this station. Thankfully the building was not not demolished and was re-developed into a mixed-use hotel, office, retail, dining and entertainment complex in the 1990s.

One early evening I crossed the Roberto Clemente Bridge to the North Side (of the Allegheny River) to make some dusk/ night photos of Pittsburgh's downtown.

Brandon and I stayed at the Renaissance Hotel seen here.
