^ You missed the other 7 misspellings. And that isn't a thread, it's a post. Be careful or someone will point out your shortcomings.

Good luck. Security with the top floors and freight elevators was tight there before 9/11. And now to even close to the elevators without having some type of business there is really hard. Also, you can't go the whole way to the top from the regular elevators anyway.

I don't think the top floors are open to the public at all any more. I used to stop in for a drink every now and then or to have dinner at the Top of the Triangle. My Age is showing!

Some groups I belonged to even had dinners there in the banquet rooms. The view from up there was mighty fine. The top of the building is higher than Mt Washington and you can see out over that side quite easily.

I was always a View fanatic but not so much an elevator fan. Yikes!

My wife works there on the 58th floor. The view is amazing.

The top floors not contain the offices of the CEO's of UPMC, you can't get up there any longer.

I think the highest floor you can access is 60 or 62.

Oh, slamont61, now that you mention it... I remember the Top of the Triangle. Never got to go there though. My age is showing too! How long ago did it close (or dare I even ask)?

DH and I would celebrate Orthodox New Years Eve there, even thought we are not Orthodox.

Friends (actually, their church) rented the Top of the Triangle annually for the event.
