Description of Program: Get nostalgic and reflect on the lost treasures of Pittsburgh with local author Rossilynne Culgan who’s writing a book on the subject. She’ll share her research on four Pittsburgh places lost over the years — Raywell’s Restaurant in the Skinny Building, the iconic Isaly’s around town, the Syria Mosque’s original location, and the Allegheny Center Mall back when it was still a mall. Bring along your memories and photos from these places — and feel free to tell Rossilynne what other “lost” places should make the book.
