Check out the Unlandmarks Map, an interactive website that tracks trees, buildings, restaurants and anything that once stood and is no more. Just like in any city, people in Pittsburgh rely on landmarks to get from one place to another, but in Pittsburgh, it doesn’t matter if the landmark exists anymore. Folks still use them to give directions.

The concept is the inspiration behind the new Unlandmarks Map, an interactive website that tracks trees, buildings, restaurants and anything that once stood and is no more.The map is a project by Code for Pittsburgh, the local Code for America group, for which Sites-Bowen is the head. They work with cities to create computer programs and codes that help government run more efficiently. But Sites-Bowen said every once in a while they do something a little more whimsical, like a Fish Fry map.
The team will be taking submissions on a rolling basis and will keep most of the data they collect in the public domain.  Propose an Unlandmark
