At XA30 en route to ZZZ1 via ZZZ VOR and ZZZ. Radar contact established with ZZZ approach at 35 mi northeast of greater ZZZ2. Asked if I wanted a vector, I replied yes. A 180 degree vector for ZZZ1 was given to me. I accepted. Along with the vector, I discontinued relying on my VOR and was navigating by the vector and pilotage and dead-reckoning. I recognized the area I was in, and even though I was up with pitt, I dialed in ZZZ tower to give them a courtesy call. When I looked up from the radio, a green and white aircraft was coming off the runway eastbound at ZZZ. The aircraft passed underneath mine. I would guess I was approximately 300 ft horizontal and 500 ft vertical. I called ZZZ approach and asked if he had pointed out the traffic to me, but I was never told 'yes' or 'no,' only that the aircraft was now north of me. I asked ZZZ tower if ZZZ approach had pointed me out to them and the controller replied, 'no.' I gave my call sign to her and told her what my destination was in case anything is to become of this.
