"What’s the “Strip District” ?

If you saw the Jack Reacher movie, the scene where Tom Cruise beats up the five guys single handedly. That was filmed in the strip district. The funny part is the bar where the scene starts is a famous bar in the southside of Pittsburgh. Then they step "outside" to fight and its on the other side of town in the strip district....

Nothing to do with stripping. It’s a strip of land with:
“a historic market district with many ethnic food purveyors, some art studios, antique dealers, unique boutiques, and other businesses setting up shop where trains once delivered produce by the ton. The Strip District comes alive primarily on weekends during the summer months when street vendors are selling their wares, the open-air farmer’s markets are in full swing, and party-goers sit outside and enjoy a drink.” (wikipedia)

The orig Primanti Bros sandwich shop is there. I noticed people selling what were probably bootleg CDs...T shirt shops etc.
