The neighborhood surrounding the Carnegie Museums and the University of Pittsburgh contains many surprises and cool sights, including the site of the 1960 World Series, the Nationality Rooms at the Cathedral of Learning, the Heinz Chapel, and a Carnegie-built architectural wonder, to name just a few. Along the way, you’ll meet a movie hoofer, Babe Ruth, a legendary songwriter, Michelangelo, and Dippy the Dinosaur.
Your team will tackle such questions as...
• Take the path of muscle resistance. What year does Calvin share with da Bear? Answer: Former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka and Calvin Smith are named on a plaque for the Class of 1961.
• Go to a famous place where you might worship a condiment. On the building, what tropical sight seems out of place? Answer: Oddly enough, palm trees are on the facade of Heinz Chapel.
• Go around the Frick Fine Arts Building toward a small baseball field, then find a remnant of a big baseball field, where the Pirates won the World Series in 1960. How deep was center field? Answer: 457 feet, according to a plaque at the site of Forbes Field.
