Long haul: Pittsburgh - Silver Spring, MD


PSA: Whatever you have heard about Pittsburgh, PA, forget it (unless you've heard that Pittsburgh is beautiful and amazing; that, you can hang on to). Christine and I have a city crush on Pittsburgh and on Mr. Rogers's Literal Neighborhood and on Luthor Towers the Pittsburgh Plate & Glass building, and potentially on many other things in our new favorite Western-Pennsylvania metropolis.


I repeat: Pittsburgh rules. (This is Station Square, which you can reach by car or by funicular. Funicular!)


The Grand Concourse, train-station-cum-restaurant. So, so beautiful. We ate at the bar.


More of the Grand Concourse. You should see the bathrooms (but the pictures didn't turn out).


Pennsylvania, late fall.

Your pictures of Pittsburgh look much better than the football game that was on yesterday - it looked like a blizzard. Brrr.

Yay Pittsburgh! I love Station Square and the view from the top of the incline. And Cory took me to the Grand Concourse for an anniversary or birthday or something a couple years ago, and it was awesome. So neat that you were in my (sort of) city!

Erica,

I was thinking of you the whole time I was there! I *loved* Pittsburgh, and I was all, "Erica comes here all the time! Awesome!"
