Nice photos - you covered a lot of ground, and I see you made it to the Mattress Factory. Pittsburgh will always feel like a second home to me - a truly unique place.

Sometimes I find that fun though. I'll often challenge myself to find the picture on Google Maps/Street View. Some are easier than others but it makes me feel like I am "touring" the city from the comfort of my home.

Also, this one really reminded me of the Ghostbusters building!

Awesome set of photos. You covered serious ground in 1 weekend. I thought these were the culmination of your first month or year here...
There's lots of great stuff happening in this city. Plenty of room for growth too.
