With a toilet like this you would want to put the seat down.
I live in PGH. There are tons and tons of great restaurants here now.
As mentioned, Fallingwater is close, as is another FLW home, Kentuck Knob. Both of those are near Ohiopyle, which has scenic hiking trails.
There are bike trails in the city as well as running out to Ohiopyle.
The Carnegie Museum is nice, both art and natural history.
I also highly recommend the Warhol Museum and the Mattress Factory (focuses on installation art, spread over three locations)
There is a vibrant music scene, though it can be under the radar (lots of DIY spaces as well as bars).
The site of the Kecksburg UFO Incident is about an hour from PGH.
Oh yes, the one thing I absolutely hate. There are certain bars I almost never go to because of this.
To refute Stormtrooper, I could probably recommend 50-100 places to eat, over a very wide price range and considering many different cuisines.
Driving here might be really interesting for folks used to more of a grid layout.
A friend's band was in town last weekend and they had never been here. They were really shocked by how hilly it is.
Folks from out of town visiting here on business, I always recommend getting a cab or uber. Yery easy to get lost in a twisty maze of passages all looking the same.
Pittsburgh is a town where the men are men and the women look like men.
There is also the matter of multiple perfectly viable routes from one place to another, depending on time of day, etc.
So, you want to go from downtown to Oakland. Do you get on the parkway and exit at Forbes Ave or do you
According to a former colleague of mine, Pittsburgh ranks right up there with punching yourself in the balls. He moved there and lived there for 4 years, then moved back. Go figure. He might be a tad biased though.
I hear it's the pitts
It certainly isn't NY or Barcelona, but I like it a lot.
Depending on where you want to live, housing can be incredibly affordable compared to other cities. My wife and I have no kids and live in a large three bedroom house that we paid about $140K for, had furnace and roof replaced year before we bought it.
There are also a ton of green areas in the city.
The view from where I sit:
If he was wearing his Browns/Bengals jersey I understand his analogy completely.
Oh yeah, regarding the whole zombie movie thing, Monroeville Mall, where Dawn Of The Dead was filmed, is still open.
My current house does not have a PGH toilet, but my last one did.
These were sometimes paired with shower heads nearby, the logic being that dudes coming home from the mill would enter the house through the basement and get cleaned up and their clothes changed before going upstairs.
So did the OP visit or not?
If you just flush twice, it'll get there; no need to make a drop-off.
Sorry to all yinz Burghians, have a lot of close college friends from Pittsburgh and that game never ends. Haven't been in a while, but I've heard great things about how it's come into its own.
Uh huh! So that's where JRR Tolkien got the line describing female Dwarfs!
My dad was from there my best friend from college lived there and my drummer's brother in our 20's lived there. Spent a LOT of time there. Honestly the coolest thing there were the mills, watching JnL from Rt70 as you came into town pretty bad ass. IIRC it took 30 miutes to drive past homestead There's a bar on every block so did some hellacious partying there and a few gigs. But honestly it always seemed very disjointed and the region seemed isolated by the company town set up. The people were very much old school ethnic and in each others business. Guess that is why my dad Joined the USAAF in june of 43 and never went back to live. I used to hear people rave about the place when I worked in a hotel and say how bad Philly was, never saw they had much to see there barring a few museums. Went back with my dad before he died and honestly we'd not been there in 40 years, it seemed pretty grim and run down out side the main downtown. Tony Dorsset Staduim was nice the Serbian Church immaculate and the New Arbys....all else seemed to have missed the 90's. and 80's booms. I guess it's like Atlantic City stay in the Zone and it's ok. Then again come down the Hwy and over the Ft. Pitt Tunnel Bridge and you can recreate the 1st 10 seconds of the SRTS. I tend agree if you live there life can be pleasant but not a destination city
In reference to the basement toilet .....Think what a great aid it would be to band rehearsals. lived in philly and the house had one, no drummer wandering off or bass player turning on the TV to see a score
So what area are you in?
