Steel City, PA | 2017

Few nights in Pittsburgh, PA - 2017.










































































Driving down William St. was amazingly steep, and a tiny bit scary. The street was a little beat up - at some certain points when driving down it feels like you can fall off the edge at any moment.
Pittsburgh is awesome.

Pitts is cotton city, not steel. History and economics class should be taken.

Steeltown blows the doors off of Atlanta, Charlotte, and other Sunbelt cities. Those old buildings are gorgeous.

I'd have to give the advantage to Atlanta over Pittsburgh with all respect. Atlanta's downtown is huge compared to Pittsburgh and has nice looking buildings. I was born in Pittsburgh, but you're giving too much credit saying it blows the doors off Atlanta.

Maybe if you're just comparing the downtown type areas, but Atlanta can't hold a candle to the dozens of intact urban residential areas Pittsburgh has.
