Smoky and Hip

Couldn't pass this one up. Jim R. catches the Miama Herald's latest contribution to Pittsburgh hagiography of late: Going with the flow has served Pittsburgh well - Home to H.J. Heinz, the Steelers and Andy Warhol, the Iron City has morphed from smoky-industrial to vibrant and hip..

You can always tell when a writer is full of it...

"All sorts of people were walking downtown, though it was a weeknight"

When was the last time you were downtown on a weeknight, Anon 10:02 AM? The northern half of Downtown has made remarkable progress in its after-business-hours vibrancy in the past few years. It's time for the myth of Pittsburgh's "dead downtown" to die... and it will be the outsiders, not myopic Yinzers, to lead the way.

The closest Yinzers ever come to downtown is the North Shore, so they wouldn't know any better about the condition of downtown. Besides, Yinzers believe any neighborhood in which more than 1% of the population is black is "dead."

I'm a passionate Pittsburgh sports fan too, and I wear my fandom on my sleeve, but the difference between myself and a Yinzer is that I'm not cliched. I appreciate more about Pittsburgh than just the Stillers, Arn City and DVE. (I actually prefer Yuengling, Penn Pilsner and B94.)

North Shore? Where is that? Is that somewhere near the North Side?
