The Point of Pittsburgh

Pennsylvania - Pittsburgh Skyline

For: US to US Traveling Envelope Round Robin - Group 74: Buildings and Architecture
Notes: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the area where the Allegheny and Monogahela (that's a fun word) Rivers converge to form the Ohio River is known as The Point.  There is actually a 36 acre (15 ha) park at The Point known as (not surprisingly) Point State Park.  The park has the remains of the two oldest structures in Pittsburgh - Forts Pitt and Duquesne.  Fort Pitt was built in 1758 by British colonists, replacing the French-built Fort Duquesne.

I had always thought that Pittsburgh was pointless.
