B Street is a short street parallel to Try Street, immediately to its west. The Post-Gazette published a photo in 1966 showing illegally parked cars on the street; its name apparently could not be identified, for the caption had to resort to the descriptions "the street which intersects First Avenue, within a block and a half of the Public Safety Building and No. 1 Police Station" and "a small thoroughfare running parallel to Try Street, beyond that terminal and Ross Street along First Avenue."[1] Two newspaper articles from 1983 and 1990 say that B Street and Try Street are the same.[2][3]
