Perusing Pittsburgh


On Monday, I took off for my third trip to Indiana, PA.  I fly into Pittsburgh to get here, and while Indiana doesn’t have a whole lot going on, other than the Jimmy Stewart museum of course, on each of my previous trips out here I noticed that Pittsburgh was a surprisingly pretty place.  So even though I’m totally ambivalent towards “Rear Window,” I decided to defer Indiana and pass on the museum to take one of my three hour tours instead.

My plane got in around 3:00.  I punched some random downtown parking garage into my GPS, popped in my earbuds and turned on my audiobook (cause I’m a baller like that) and by 4:30 I was wandering aimlessly about the Steel City.  Luckily, a friend of mine is dating a girl from Pittsburgh, and she was kind enough to give me a pointer or two, so I wasn’t flying completely blind.

After a few hours of strolling around, and a pretty descent dinner by the Monongahela River (the Mon, if you’re not an out of towner), I rode the Mon Incline up to the top of Mount Washington to take in the rather breathtaking view of the skyline…

Anywho, for the next few days, I’ll be taking you along on my little stroll.  Have a look…

Even though that pesky construction kept me from the Point State Fountain, the rest of the city was certainly worth seeing.  Come back tomorrow and check it out.  It’s bed time.

  1. Beautiful pictures! You captured my city beautifully.
    That “castley” building? PPG Place (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PPG_Place)
    And, the sixth picture from the bottom, that is where I live!

    • Thanks :). I’m glad to get a local’s stamp of approval. I have to say it’s one of the prettier cities I’ve seen. I really enjoyed it. I’m sure this is pretty normal, but it was nothing like what I expected. But I really enjoyed it… Thanks for your interest.

Enough about me, what do you think?
