Pittsburgh Pictures

I’m feeling a little lazy about writing, so I thought I’d just post some Pittsburgh/Falling Water pictures for now.

Downtown Pittsburgh. This pictures was taken by my brother and it shows a nice view of the Pittsburgh skyline. For such a small city (just over 300,000) it has a pretty impressive skyline. Then again, it used to be a city of over 600,000.

Pittsburgh bridges. Another picture courtesy of my brother. If Wikipedia is telling the truth, Pittsburgh has more bridges than any other city in the world at over 400.

The University of Pittsburgh's Cathedral of Learning. I have to admit I was a little disappointed...for some reason I expected something very opulent and over-the-top...but it was mostly just classrooms and administrative buildings.

A jogging/walking path through Schenley Park near the University of Pittsburgh. I take my pictures from my iphone so they aren't exactly the best, but this was a really nice, large park.

It's not exactly beautiful, but this was one of our favorite spots in Pittsburgh. No, the coffee wasn't 61 cents, but it had a nice vibe and great lighting. It's located in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood not too far from the University of Pittsburgh.
