Long Description:
On Forward Avenue in Squirrel Hill, you'll pass what looks like an ordinary block of business storefronts. But evil lurks beneath. Behind the buildings, a brick street snakes down the steep hill, intersecting with Forward Avenue at a strange angle. The corner building on the block was built to fit in the narrow triangular piece of real estate pie between the two streets. It is only five feet wide at its narrow end.

Also note... you enter the stores in the front of the building on the first level. Because of the hilly street behind the building, there is a street-level door to enter the second story in the rear!
