45 Responses to The Protractor Map: The Master List

  1. This is fascinating. How old do you think the oldest ones are? The picture of the one missing on the yellow box made it seem like there was a kind of “hole” where the protractor used to be. Are they using a destructive chemical glue?

    • ericlidji says:

      They are at least six months old, but they could be a lot older than that. I don’t think they’re going up in numerical order.

      I can’t tell if the glue is chemical or not, but it didn’t pull up the paint because there is yellow underneath. (Although No. 90 did pull the paint off the mailbox.)

  2. Mac says:

    #67 is at stanton and chislett.. it’s purple on a yellow utility box!

  3. Andy says:

    #48 is on Craig St between Forbes and Filmore on a set of stairs going up to “Wicked Discs” on the west side of the street. My friend and I have been protractor searching for a few months now as well and just came across your blog and the recent newscast about them.

  4. Richard says:

    I found #301 on bike trail in Millvale Park. Go under Rt. 28. Turn right on Willow Grove Ave. Look at guard rail along bike trail heading towards rowing club. I have picture but no place to send it or post.

  5. Gally says:

    Hey! This is great, I was wondering about these things all over the place! I’ve found a few, but I’ve not been noting them down. I started writing down locations and numbers today:

    94: on centre ave in front of the UMPC urgent care at 5231 centre. Its green.
    95: is on CENTRE ave, not baum, and its green.

  6. Zed says:

    I saw a couple just the other day. #304 and 305 (purple) are both on the 40th Street Bridge between Lawrenceville and Millvale. They are both on the North side of the bridge, 304 is next to a service door and 305 is on the guard rail.

    Good hunting!

  7. TAPERRY says:

    We found one on the 16th Street Bridge, glued to a vertical steel I-beam, about half way across, on the left side (if you’re heading toward the Strip District). It’s white; the number looks like it’s either 225 or 226.

  8. quizbot says:

    #70 is between Black St & Hays St on Samantha Way. Attached to a dumpster.

  9. tomas says:

    I found #2

  10. tomas says:

    I also dont think we should take them down…..

  11. Patty says:

    Number 316 is purple-ish in color and located on Forbes Ave. between Rite Aid and the JCC.

  13. Adam says:

    #306 is hidden with some other street art on the backside of the railroad bridge at the end of 36th Street in Lawrenceville.

  14. Patty says:

    260 (purple) is located outside the New Hazlett Theater at the bottom of a post, I believe somewhat close to Allegheny Square East.

  15. Disciple says:

    A friend of mine and I discovered 330 today in East Liberty, the highest I’ve seen. I could give you a location but that would take all the fun out of it.

    Happy Hunting.

  16. Nanci says:

    Protractor #349 is on top of one of the small orange traffic stoppers that reside in the middle of and on the Millvale Trail at the new concrete bridge that is across from the rowing place on Washingtons Landing. It is near the 31st Street Bridge… I have a picture but not sure how to get that to you.

  17. jsn says:

    Number 43 is on a road sign as you cross the train tracks at the river end of 43rd in Lawrenceville. I think it was green.

  18. susie says:

    Hi!
    I found #389 today on Liberty Ave (near Church Brew Works). It looks pretty new!

    389 Light Purple

  19. Mike Fifth says:

    #345 – light purple is located on Goettman street in Troy Hill across from the old Cowley rec center.

  20. David Bennett says:

    #352 – White – vertical H BEAM rr tie wall at old B&O RR underpass to what once was the 43rd st covered bridge Millvale side along bike trail.

  21. susie b says:

    412 and 413 are near the other new ones!
    412 Light Purple
    413 from far away
    413 Light Purple

  22. Nanci says:

    #396 is affixed to a garbage can along the Millvale Trail near the Heinz Lofts.

  23. Tom Nason says:

    Got a few for you. #358 (don’t remember color, I’ll snap a photo at some point), Bates & 376 off-ramp, on the back of a stop sign.
    Two unknown #s I’m not sure you have (you seem to have killed the xx# list in an update recently): Parkview & Swinburne (painted over on a Post box)
    Bates & McKee (same)
    I’d probably put those two in sequence with the unknown # you used to have listed on Louisa & Atwood, since they likely correspond to a sweep through Oakland.

    Here’s some with pictures: http://imgur.com/8ZFA5Gg,cr7ueju,fWw3DcF
    #384: Forbes Avenue (~2400 block, before hitting Lawn St. right at the start of Oakland, I believe its on a girder supporting Blvd of the Allies above)
    #385: Same location, a couple girders down
    #275 (purple? (looks blue in photo, I can go back and double check) protractor with undiscernable # in the photo, it was written in silver sharpie, but I could read it): On a door on the interior of the block behind Forbes Ave (in front of Sennott Sq.) between S Bouquet and Oakland. Its not really close to any corner, as the dwelling entrances it is above are set back into the block because of the parking lot behind Fuel & Fuddle.

    Now from those three undetermined #s in Oakland and #275, those could all fit nicely as #276, 277 and 278. With 280 and 281 missing as well, might be too prospective though.

    Anyway, happy hunting!

  24. Tom Nason says:

  25. Abby K says:

    I found 366! It’s in North Oakland, on Dollar Street (off Centre Ave) behind the All India restaurant. It’s light purple.

  26. josh says:

    423 is on the gaurd rail across from the intersection of Greenfield ave and Yoder st

  27. liz says:

    472 is on a metal box, which is on a foot-high concrete tube shape, along the three rivers heritage trail, opposite the parking lot at Station Square.
