This is the North Side of Pittsburgh. Right across the Allegheny from downtown, and up a few hills:

Mckeesport. I rode the 61C bus down to Mckeesport. This is a city down river from Pittsburgh. I had heard about how dangerous and run down this city was (like Camden, NJ across from my hometown of Philadelphia), so I had to go check it out.

Nice pictures. I thought that the North Side had some nicer neighborhoods. Obviously, that doesn't mean that every neighborhood is nice, but how close were those boarded up buildings to neighborhoods like Mexican War Streets?

Those photos were taken in the Fineview area, which is in the hills above the Mexican War Street. The North Side does have some nicer neighborhoods, but as all over the city there are plenty of run down looking houses looking like they need some tlc, mixed in with the upkept homes.

These are from 5 days ago. I got covered in snow because I was only wearing a hoodie and no jacket. This was from my fail trek out to the West End, walked the wrong way and by the time I go to the Overlook it was almost dark, and my hands were frozen (no gloves). Anyway's I went back days later, and those photos are coming tomorrow.

Heavy Snow:

Snow. These are from 10 days ago when I walked from Oakland to downtown. I had to make a detour around due to the sidewalks being covered in snow.

Business as usual in Oakland, on Fifth:
