Station Square used to have many great shops but now it seems like a lot have closed. It’s still fun to walk around and there’s a lot of parking available. Hooligans and Melting Pot are still here. An ok tourist stop.

Very unique place with great views of the river and city. I have been here several times. Don't think I will be back to eat at the Union Square restaurant. Worst claim chowder I have ever had. Shrimp Caesar salad was just as bad.

Don't forget Uber. Usually pick you up in 5 minutes, and costs less than a taxi. They do have a permit at PIT. I don't think Lyft does.
