Pitt doesn't have their own stadium anymore. They demoed the stadium in 1999 and the team moved to Heinz Field with the Steelers.

Peterson Events Center was built in place of Pitt Stadium.

Jersey City's old Roosevelt Stadium, former home of the Jersey City Giants Minor League team, and for a few games in '56/'57, the Brookyln Dodgers. This is where Jackie Robinson broke Baseball's color barrier while playing for the Montreal Royals. It was also home to many famous concerts, including by the Grateful Dead in the 70s and 80s:

I love these old art deco stadiums. Even old and worn down there's just so much beauty.

Air Canada Centre ('The ACC'), Toronto

This used to be a postal station but was re-purposed as a NBA/NHL/NLL arena. Very little of the old art deco building remains but they did retain this exterior wall.

I'm so glad we are all like minded! I went to Miami and stayed on South Beach with my wife a 2 years ago and everyone was like what was the best part: The Pools, the clubs, the food? And I'm like The 2 hour art deco hotel tour lol

Hersheypark Arena, so much history. Forget about Chamberlain's 100-point game, this is where the Madness met the Mania and the Mega Powers were formed there in 1987! You wonder why the WWF seemingly held a show there every month and you are reminded about the proximity to Dr. Zahorian and the steroid distribution and it all makes sense.

REPOST (with some additions):
The Rizal Memorial Coliseum is an indoor arena built on a streamline-moderne art deco style located in Manila, Philippines. Designed by Juan Arellano and opened in the year 1934 during the American colonial rule as a tennis stadium, it was partially destroyed during World War II in 1945 and it was rebuilt in 1953 for the use in 1954 Asian Games. Now, the coliseum is under ongoing massive restoration for the first time to host the gymnastics in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
