I went to school at Pitt which is where I got infected with the Black and Gold fever. My wife's mom's side of the family is all from Western PA, and we flew to Pgh last year to watch the Superbowl in a Pittsburgh bar (in squirrel hill beneath a bowling alley, I can't remember the name of the place) with a buddy of ours rather than watching it at home in RI. It really is a beautiful city, and we both talk about buying a second home in Da Burgh once our house is paid off, and eventually retiring out there.

Nice article. I remember my first trip out to Pittsburgh and how my wife and I were just blown away by all the Steelers pride in the city. Man every where you looked someone was sporting Steelers gear. It was truly an awesome experience. We can't wait to get back for another game.

A lot of people who come here for the first time are amazed that Pittsburgh is not a dirty old steel town but a fairly modernized city with a deep history, great people and a hell of a lot of beauty. We love our Steelers fiercely, but most of us also support our Pirates and Pens no matter what type of season they have. We view them as one of our own and ride the ebbs and tides, always believing. No doubt in my mind - Pittsburgh is one of the best - if not THE best - cities out there.

I read that Pittsburgh is one of the top 5 cleanest cities in the US. So people that like to claim that is is so dirty and trashy have obviously never been there.

Great article and pics. I really enjoyed them. THANKS!

I'm not sure about cleanest. I remember having to wade through ankle-deep piles of trash every night on Forbes outside The O when I was at Pitt (mid-90s, maybe its gotten better?). However, I remember at the time reading that Pittsburgh had more green space than any other major city.

Over the years they have really cleaned up the city. I am always suprised when I go to Pittsburgh.

Most definitely. Pittsburgh has come a long way since the early to mid 90's - people who haven't been here in a long time would be pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, though, those rats with wings have decided to take up permanent residency in downtown Pittsburgh - can't get rid of them no how -LOL!

Oakland is actually one of the areas in Pittsburgh that has been cleaned up quite well. Oakland used to be a complete dump, especially in the times you were talking about, but it's really coming along nicely.
