Anthony Weiner’s new website for New York Mayoral bid features the wrong skyline, Pittsburgh instead of New York

Anthony Weiner just launched his campaign for mayor of New York City.

Weiner for Mayor wrong skyline Pittsburgh New YorkHis campaign website feature the skyline of another Eastern city — Pittsburgh.

While the designer of the website is taking the blame for the error, obviously no one at the Weiner campaign noticed the error when it went live.

As shown below, the bridge in that photo sure looks a lot like the Roberto Clemente Bridge and/or Andy Warhol Bridge in Pittsburgh, and many of the buildings in the background appear all-too-similar as well (as demonstrated most clearly by the BNY Mellon Center just to the left of center at the top of each photo).

Weiner’s website now features a different background of (what appears to be) several photographs of New York City sights.

“This is our fault. NGP VAN acknowledges that the image of the wrong skyline on the placeholder page for the Weiner campaign was our honest mistake, and not that of the Weiner campaign. Our designer got the image from a set of images that included New York City images, but obviously this image was not of New York City, as the Weiner campaign had requested. With the image behind a strong blue background, our team did not catch this mistake. The offending image has been replaced, and the placeholder page now uses a New York City image, as will the full website when it launches.”
