Pittsburgh Trip- A Walk Through The City

On our second day there we decided to walk around downtown. It was pretty busy, but it was manageable, until we turned down this one road and there were people walking EVERYWHERE. It felt like we were suddenly transported to new york city and we had to manuver our way through confusing unfamiler roads while trying not to hit anyone. Or anything. It was very overwhelming and we got pretty traumatized. We almost gave up, but then we finally found a parking spot on a quiet street.




I believe my response upon seeing these birds was "Look! city pigeons!"


There is a nice little park at the tip of downtown where were able to relax after our, exciting.. Drive.




I just can't get over those cute little houses on top of the hills!



I love seeing the old buildings mixed in with the new ones.

  1. awesome pictures!
    i really love the one of that big building that is like a mirror and the houses on the hills.
    that is just so cool... so. cool.
    i love seeing the old and new buildings, too. i love that tall one standing up in the middle of nothing. i always get to wondering, what was it when was it built and stuff like that.
    neat!

    1. Thanks! I always like to imagine what old buildings used to be like too, and what people thought of them when they were first built.

    1. It made me feel small standing next to them! I thought my city had tall buildings until I went there.
