arrival in Pittsburgh

When arriving last night I was kind of taken with how pretty Pittsburgh is at night... the bridges across the river are suspension bridges, well lit, and the town uses color. Flying overhead, I spotted a flaming smokestack, which I realized meant that this is a city that makes stuff. Steel City, or refinery, or whatever, it doesn't really matter what that thing was connected to; other than razor blades, I can't really think of stuff that comes out of Boston.

Driving from the airport, I spotted some pretty neon buildings down by the water; I can't remember what they were anymore, but... Pittsburgh's answer to Storrow Drive is just so wide, and relaxing, and well-lit.

It was pretty. what can I say?

I just remember walking past the NECCo factory every morning. Not exactly fondly, mind you, but I remember it.

The town I live in now makes lots of food.

The Tootsie Roll factory occasionally also exuded sweetly odors back in the day. You just didn't need to go past it all that much. :)
