Street Addresses:

Downtown Pittsburgh is shaped like a triangle.  There are two systems of numbered roads:  numbered streets and numbered avenues.  Thus, 147 Fifth Ave. is a completely different location from 147 Fifth St.  The streets are on one side of Liberty Ave., and the avenues are on the other side of Liberty Ave.  Please look at the link to the map shown below.
