Hailing from all corners of the globe, our team had something to show you. We wanted to shed some light on our home towns, a small introspective into our lives. Spanning across two countries you will get an up close look at where we wake and lay our heads to rest. Travel Home with us and experience a city you might have never been to or perhaps even relive moments in your favorite cities through the lens of the VSCO Cam app. Our second stop on the trip, we head South from Brooklyn and visit Pittsburgh via our Editor at Large, Ryan Neeven:
The City of Bridges, The Steel City, The 412, The Burgh, or as I call it, my home. Situated at the confluence of the Ohio, Mon0ngahela, and the Allegheny Rivers, Pittsburgh is a history rich city with its roots dating all the way back to the Revolutionary War. Voted as America’s “Most Livable City” this past year, the small town feel in a big city atmosphere is a very welcoming factor brought to you by the warm vibrant culture found in each and every neighborhood. No matter what you are into there is always something to do in the city whether that be visiting the Andy Warhol Museum, catching a baseball game at PNC Park, doing some shopping on Walnut Street, or just having a drink at one of the numerous bars on East Carson Street in the South Side. Consisting of 90 different neighborhoods, each with their own distinctive and unique characteristics you will have trouble trying to decide where you want to start your journey through the Burgh. If you are going to do things the Pittsburgh way, get off the plane and head straight to the Strip District to get the Pittsburgh-famous Primanti’s sandwich, don’t worry those fry’s and coleslaw are actually supposed to be on the sandwich and not on the side and be sure to wash it all down with a cold Iron City Beer. Welcome to Pittsburgh!
