Sunrise over the Monongahela 6:55AM.
Pittsburgh is a photogenic city. I live on Mt. Washington, overlooking the downtown skyline, Point Park and a panoramic view of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers. I've been up here for most of the past decade. I could live somewhere with a bigger yard, maybe quieter, or near hipper places to eat. I have, and it was not for me. I love my view and I love being close to just about everything.

You might not know about the business district on Shiloh Street. There's a nice bar and grill, a hot dog joint, a new bakery and liquor store, among many other things. I wouldn't get the Chinese on Shiloh though; it's the worst food I've had anywhere. Ever.

If you haven't been to Pittsburgh recently, I suggest visiting if you have a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised by how much Pittsburgh has grown and matured while remaining true to its character.

If you have some photos of Pittsburgh to share, email them to me and I will post them here and give you credit.

9AM a few days later.

Some iconic KIDS grafitti. Looking South to the city along the Allegheny River from the Strip District.

Crossing the 16th Street Bridge to the North Side in the rain. Heinz plant in the background.

Just look at this f*cking hamburger. Did you expect there not to be food? Winghart's, Market Square.
