I am back. U of Pittsburgh right now is currently experiencing daily bomb threats, it is crazy around here. Anyway's this one is short, it is just showing the lovely scenes you can experience when walking up or down any of the public staircases around the city. These particular stairs go from Oak Hill to Allequippa St near the Birmingham Bridge:

First time viewing your collection, and my first impressions on Pittsburgh are wonderful. I mean, the Allegheny Valley region is interesting in that it was part of the Rust Belt, with heavy industries that manufactured steel and other durable goods, and the legacy of it still prevails around Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley through its bridges, buildings, and more profound (long-established) communities.

New Castle looks pretty quaint and has a traditional American downtown feel... I wonder, though: the street signs seem to be wrong on one of your images where Mill Street is the name of one roadway, while on top of it (where the name of the town or city is placed), it says the opposite roadway, E Washington Street (and vice versa). Should that sign be replaced with, say "City of New Castle" or "Town of New Castle" because it seems to be a bit confusing to planners and tourists? The City of Pittsburgh, on the other hand, looks amazing with the varied densities, designs, and themes of the various neighborhoods... I especially like Oakland's skyline where I can see a contrast of at least one tall tower on the far right side and several mid-rise buildings most of the way, giving an impression that it is a bit far from the central core of the City. And, while you may have quite a gap between photos, I can sense that the Allegheny Valley is a diverse region, full of charming small towns anchored by Pittsburgh, and I truly love the contrasts that make the region interesting.

Lovely shots, my friend! Hopefully, you can show even more of your great images on a regular basis.

Thank you. I will try. I have a backlog of photo's that I need to post in here. Not really sure why I stopped but I will get back to posting weekly. And as for the sign it looks like it might be to remind motorists of the street they are on or turning off of, not completely sure.

This will be a 2-part on Frick Park. Friday was my first time going through it and it is the best city park I've been in in the US. It is truly amazing how spectacular Frick Park is.
