This is Pittsburgh – Video HD

When it comes to U.S. cities, Pittsburgh has it all. With a stunning skyline, three rivers, great people, a thriving food scene, and some of the best sports teams in the nation, the Steel City is truly someplace special. This is Pittsburgh!

A big small city, or small big city (depending on how you see it) the Burgh is a city of over 300,000 residents in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania (southwestern). Also known as the Steel City, Pittsburgh is situated at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, which come together to form the Ohio River.

The city’s unique terrain has resulted in an unusual city design and a hodge-podge of unique neighborhood “pockets” with diverse ethnic and architectural heritage. Although it is becoming less and less of a well-kept secret, the city’s unique combination of bridges, steep hills, and broad rivers make it one of the most naturally scenic cities in the country.

Pittsburgh can prove to be difficult for strangers to navigate because the roads seem to go every which way, constrained by the rivers and hills. There are many are one-way streets, and nearly all of them can be on the narrow side as they were laid out in the days of horse-and-buggy transportation. Luckily, those with a GPS navigation device should get around fine. And even those without GPS can call for a taxi or even take advantage of the public transit, operated by the Port Authority.

This works quite well downtown and for many of the tourist attractions like Heinz Field and PNC Park. But should you find yourself lost or unsure, however, do not be afraid to ask for help. Most Pittsburghers are friendly and glad to give directions. Don’t be surprised if they actually wind up taking you to the destination themselves. Source:
