HYP Club

Tucked away between 6th and 7th Avenues on William Penn Way in downtown Pittsburgh is the Allegheny Harvard Yale Princeton Club. I don’t know much about it as I didn’t attend any of those schools, but I think this little old brick building hidden among much larger buildings is rather cool. I really like the architecture of it with the entry arch.

I shot this one morning a few months back while walking downtown on my way to work. The light coming on in the bay window caught my eye, so I snapped a few brackets freehand. Normally I just walk on past this building every day without paying much attention to it.
