The Metamorphosis of Pittsburgh PA USA

When I lived across the state line in Youngstown in the 1970's, Pittsburgh was Steel City USA, with houses and skies darkened from the soot and pollution.  Like a butterfly, Pittsburgh has been reborn since then into a regional financial and cultural center.  With leading universities, museums and a historic past, Pittsburgh is a city on the move.  Unfortunately, my wife and I spent time there in September '07 to get our son enrolled in one of the universities there, and had little time for sightseeing.  The downtown is a jewel surrounded by three rivers but no pictures this trip, as most of our time was spent in its Oakland neighborhood and its university surroundings.
