By day the Strip has fish and vegetable markets, bakeries, restaurants, and other unique attractions to draw tourists and locals. By night this area becomes one of Pittsburgh's top nightlife areas--though it seemed a bit rough-and-tumble for my taste. Not only was there one or two policemen at the door of most bars and clubs, but we also saw a drunk chick passed out on the street corner at 1 am and various local hoodlums and hoodlum wanna-bes chilling in the parking lots watching the people go by throughout the night.

Primanti Brothers, The Pittsburgh Brewing Company, Wholey's seafood warehouse, and numerous other businesses call the Strip home.

A few blocks off Smallman Street is Liberty Ave, once the heart of Pittsburgh's sex scene. Their heyday was in the 1970s, and the last strip club closed in 2005. Now the area is home to several cultural attractions and technology firms.
