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?

Yeah, I got my initiation to the Pittsburgh tunnels this evening, hitting a couple of them ending with the Liberty Tunnel (once each way). As much as I like the Big Dig in Boston, well, these are tunnels through actual stuff.

Maybe it's just memories from of old, living in northeast Ohio, among the same kinds of ravines and bridges... driving an interstate you'd come over a ridge and be looking down on this beautiful valley, with the road stretching all the way through. Amazing.

Enh, New England has its own features... Cambridge city streets designed by cows :)
