What’s on the Starbucks mug?

The mug is from Starbucks’s ‘city icon’ series (no, I didn’t buy it, too bulky and I don’t drink 16 oz of coffee at a time, yikes! ) .. but what is the icon on the mug, I wondered?  Is it a tree?  And why is it not one of the city’s nice steel bridges that’s on the mug, I wondered.  Well : it’s a fountain, the one in Point State Park at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, forming the Ohio River.  I’ll have to go check it out, but – it’s quite a drive to the city from the offices where we work, and the weather is pretty darn cold, dipping into the teens today.
