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.

An unpretentious city that can be both stifling and inspiring, lively and deadly, hip and stuck in the past - a big village with it's own sort of Yinzer charm!
Wow, he's so cool... he must be from Pittsburgh!

A vast, lively city that is never the same twice. It looks like your typical mild-mannered, politically correct city, but the area's residents know that it is far more. Truly uplifting people, amazing turnouts for sporting events, lots of beer, Pennsylvania's largest concentration of Gothic Lolitas, a wonderful indie music scene, and some great colleges.

Also, there is so much water. Three rivers meet at an area Pittsburghers have come to call The Point, and there's a cool fountain and picnic area there. Pittsburgh is also notorious for flooding.

Finally, Pittsburgh's weather is off-the-wall. It's May as I'm writing this, and we had snow two weeks ago, warm-ish rain last week, and this week we're expecting it to be cold. Still.
Going on vacation? Come to Pittsburgh. You may have to stay in Monroeville because there aren't any hotels in the city, but look on the bright side--it's only a twenty-minute ride from any of our suburbs to the city itself...!

One of America's great cities; a place with authentic neighborhoods, characterful people, interesting architecture, stunning vistas, a keen sense of history, and a uniqe ability to reinvent itself in a changing economy while maintaing the best of its past. Certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the country, it is without a peer in cities of similar size or, in many cases, much larger cities. A truly special place where people feel comfortable to relax, be who they really are, have good conversation, meet strange people, and generally enjoy a balanced way of life.
Pittsburgh is one of America's great cities.

A pretty place with coal and steel and rivers.
Pittsburgh was the coolest place to go when we were young and bored and single.
