Goodbye Children's Hospital, Hello Greenspace
The iconic hospital that stood on the corner of Fifth Ave and DeSoto St. in Oakland for over 70 years is gone. The demolition of the old Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHP) has finally ended and in its place some much needed greenspace. CHP moved to its new location in Lawrenceville in 2009 and the leveling of the old building began in the Fall of 2010. Here are some pics of the demolition and landscaping.
