That's So Pittsburgh: Motor Square Garden
The Mellon family built East Liberty Market c. 1900. It didn't do well as a market and was bought in 1915 by the Pittsburgh Automobile Association for car shows and boxing matches. Then it was a new-car dealership. When it failed as an urban mall, AAA bought the building in 1988. There's a DMV office and also the UPMC Shadyside School of Nursing. This is the dome, three stories up.
