Turn left where Isaly's used to be.....

Anyone reading this blog is going to be interested in this post: Ghost Pittsburgh : the conceptual divide between natives and immigrants, a post on the community.livejournals.pittsburgh forum. Given the 237 comments to the post in just a few days, it seems to have struck a nerve.

It's worth reading because it nails the divisions that exist here, not necessarily because it has the full picture. The author claims that the "ghost Pittsburgh" made up of what Pittsburgh natives think is going on here does not exist. It really cuts both ways. I would suggest reading Mike Madison's post on the two, or is it three, Pittsburghs. Pulling together the thoughts of both posts it seems clear that the "Ghost Pittsburgh" may not exist to many new Pittsburghers, but it is equally true that the ideal vision of a new Pittsburgh does not exist for many who have been here a long time. It is my firm belief that the two worlds rarely attempt to talk to the other, or when they do just talk past each other. If blame is the right word for the situation, there is enough on both sides.

The understanding that everyone looks at the world from their own unique perspective is a good revelation for everyone sooner or later. What has long been missing from Pittsburgh has been the desire to bridge those gaps.

I know I am late to this, but...

It might be easy to chuckle at directions involving Isaly's. But Pittsburgh is not alone in this regard. To oh-so-hip Gawker has a whole column dedicated to such historical musings in New York City. (Usually not work safe, by the way.)
