Skinny Building

This is not very new, but two Pittsburgh artists that go by Horsie and seakMAC, teamed up for a project a few years ago to make an old, skinny building that's located downtown at Forbes and Wood a space dedicated to street art in the 2nd and 3rd floor windows. As you can see from the pictures, the space is limited in the building and those floors have been vacant for years before that. Well it turns out that space was well utilized for art from around 2003, but in August of 2007 the space transferred owners and has since been empty. Unfortunate, but true. Still, it was a great endeavor and the building is still around, maybe we can do some convincing to the new owner.
Unfortunately I don't have a year for the image below, but this must be what the first floor looked like in its heyday:
