“Fredosaurus Rex Friday XIII” embodies the love
and respect taught by Fred Rogers in his legendary television
program, Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. Complete with
two friends from the neighborhood and a red trolley, this
dinosaur reminds us all of just how special Pittsburgh is.
Regardless of age, everyone will recognize this fellow. This
dinosaur is leading the pack for "Most Appealing to Children”
in the DinoMite Days People’s Choice awards.
Conveniently located in the heart of the Cultural District,
Fifth Avenue Place is a downtown destination. Lush
flowerbeds, tree-lined terrazzo sidewalks, and inviting awning-trimmed
windows warmly welcome guests. Inside, glistening brass storefronts,
columns, wrought iron lampposts, and inviting park benches
evoke the charm of a quaint European-style arcade. The center
is home to a complimentary mix of unique specialty shops,
tempting Food Court eateries, and one of the city's premier
restaurants, Caffe Amante. Open Monday through Saturday.
Five Avenue pkace is now the headquarters for Highmark Insurance. Fredosaurus has been moved to the southside headquarters of the Jenkins-Empire Associates who owned Fifth Avenue Place.
