Well that's a view...

I wonder how it will look when it's cleaned, or if it is.

Well, that brings back memories. When I was in college, a friend attended Pitt and I visited a few times. His dorm was one of three cylindrical towers with the imaginative names Tower A, B, and C. The rooms were pie-shaped. The Cathedral loomed a few blocks down Forbes Ave and the old Pirates' home, Forbes Field, was across the street.

What are the upper floors used for? It would be quite a schlep if those were classrooms up there; but if they were dorms, I'd kill for that view!
