The 4th most polluted city in the U.S. If you're planning on visiting it will take 2 or 3 days to get used to the smell. It's dirty, depressing, grimy, filthy, and disgusting. The people are hicks and except for those who live here while attending college (and then leave quickly after), most people seem uneducated.
The Pittsburgh dialect is enough to make you want to slap the person speaking for abusing grammar in such a way. It's pretty bad.
99% of natives wear Pittsburgh Steelers shirts or hats EVERY DAY even when it's not football season. Individuality isn't a strong point. Natives are also very proud and defensive of Pittsburgh, but that's probably because they've never been anywhere else, so they can't really compare it.
Whomever designed the street layout was on drugs. I think someone else described it accurately on here. There's also a huge shortage of street signs, so if you're new to this shithole, plan on getting lost alot. People hate Sienna Miller for calling it Shitsburgh, but deep down they know she's right, and if they don't know, I'll tell you. She's right. She is very, very right.
Pittsburgh hobbies include the Steelers. If the Steelers ever left Pittsburgh, everyone would kill themselves, but not before downing a few six-packs of beer.
There's a reason people outside of Pittsburgh don't put french fries on their salads. Because it's gross. Don't plan on that food trend catching on elsewhere.
People are rude and racist. Since I moved here a year ago, I've heard the "N" word thrown around quite casually (but ONLY around other White people). That's just sad.
The TV series "Queer as Folk" is supposed to take place in Pittsburgh, but because the city is so ugly, they filmed it in Canada. That's why it looks kinda nice on the series, but don't let that fool you into coming here. You'll regret it.
No, you didn't die and go to Hell, you took a wrong turn and ended up in Pittsburgh. Common mistake with all the soot and smoke and Steelers fans.
