I was also there for the rare East Coast earthquake on Tuesday. We were on the 19th floor and felt the shaking and swaying pretty well even though it was a couple hundred miles away. Apparently, the Appalachian Mountains are very old and the whole "plate" is fused together, so the shaking traveled longer distances than it would in California where the plates are more fractured. But it was fun to be there for it.
Those aren't real trees - they're "steel magnolias."
A "disco dino," a "ketchup dino," and another - I think he was fossils - in the middle of glass buildings that look kind of like castles.
The lobby of the William Penn Hotel where I stayed.
Old churches are always the coolest thing in these eastern cities.
From my seat at the ballgame - with the Pittsburgh skyline across the river.
A giant statue of Willie Stargell outside the stadium. If there's one thing ALL Pittsburghers love it's their sports teams.
There's a lot of bridges, too. And this one was closed to everything but foot traffic for the baseball game.
