Ellsworth Ave in the Shadyside section of Pittsburgh has some nice homes. This area appears to be a bit wealthy, is close to Pitt and Carnegie Mellon, and has the 71C bus route connecting it with East Wilkinsburg, Oakland, and downtown Pittsburgh (and this route is due to become a Rapid Route in early 2010 meaning more service).

So here are my photos of Ellesworth Ave:

Also, the Negley Station (right off Ellsworth) on the MLK jr. East Busway gives even faster service to downtown or Swissvale:

Winter Wonderland

Back in Pittsburgh after Winter Break. It has snowed for three days in a row, finally went out today to capture some of it

The city from the bridge. The walkway was unplowed (unlike the road part), so I got plenty wet from this:

Looking towards Station Square and Mt. Washington:

The Panhandle Bridge carries light rail trains from downtown to Library, Allentown, and South Hills Village Mall across the Monongahela:

First Ave T Station, the only above ground downtown station:

This trip comprised mostly of visiting the North Shore to check out the skyline views from over there.

This is a great photo. It reminds of a scene from Central Park...but with shorter buildings in the background.

I took the 41E bus up to Mt. Washington then walked to the South Hills Junction T station. This is Warrington Ave, which the 52 Allentown T line follows partially from downtown to South Hills Village:

Morningside. I took the bus up there once again to drop of clothes in the Goodwill drop box, but this time decided to explore the area little bit. This neighborhood is at the northern edge of the city and borders the Allegheny River.

House with a lot of green:
[IMG]http://i46.************/wvz5i0.jpg[/IMG]

Street is steep, needs steps for the sidewalk:
[IMG]http://i46.************/4hva69.jpg[/IMG]

Houses here are close together:

Looking across the river to Sharpsburg:

As everywhere in the city, bus transportation is excellent:

Still Christmas in January:

Later in the day, I went downtown and to the North Shore, saw this:
