The greatest damn place in the universe. pronounced - Picksburgh. We hate Cincinnati. Fuck the Bengals. The Steelers are a religion. We bleed black and gold. We say "yinz," "haus," "warsh," and our favorite foods are "kibossi" and pirogies. Rolling Rock and Iron City are the shit. It's cheap but fucks your ass up, so who cares? You can't drive five minutes without hitting a pothole, but get over it. You don't like it, get the fuck outta my city. We have K-Mark's, and Wal-Mark's. We have tittie bars. We're getting a casino, and if you don't like the "Stillers" you're obviously not a real football fan. It's Car-Nay-Gee not Carn-Uh-Gee. Contrary to popular belief, there are NOT a lot of rednecks. But yes about the fat men drinking Pabst beer all day. We love our Amish. You're just jealous cuz you don't have them! We have Paps, not Paw-Paws or Pop-Pops. You can take a bus most anywhere. Tourists love to take pictures of our city all lit up at night. I've rode the incline, several times. Everybody loves giving the bird in Pittsburgh! We tell people to stop being so damn "nebby." When you ask someone to hand you a "gum-band" you know exactly what they are talking about. For yinz or youz guys who don't know what a gum-band is : that's a rubber band. We know all three rivers by name. The Ohio, Monongahela, and Allegheny. When someone starts to chant "Here we Go Steelers," you know exactly what to do. We drink pop, eat hoagies, and all our sandwiches and salads have fries on 'em. W...more...
If you consider yourself to be a crying little bitch,(like many of the above authors) stay on the west coast you yuppie piece of shit. Pittsburgh does not cater to you, and its residents will chew you up and spit you out. This city was founded by, and is full of, blue collar workers that will just as soon shake your hand as punch you in the face. Most people from other cities are jealous of the Steelers dominance and therefore make claims that the city is below average. However, although the people can be a little rough around the edges, they are no where near as offensive and rude as New Yorkers, or as air headed and stoned as Californians. The city itself is clean and always expanding. Pittsburgh will soon be hosting the MLB allstar game in the new PNC Park stadium. Pittsburgh sits on three beautiful rivers that were the home of last years BASS Masters tournament. The charm of Pittsburgh lies in its history,location, and diversity, not its trendy bars and nightlife. The city employs no gimmicks or outlandish claims to get people to visit, it is what it is, like it or not.
I stopped in Pittsburgh for a few days on business, and while I was there I told locals that their city was shitty. They soon sent their wives to beat my ass because i was such a baby that they felt bad doing it themselves. Afterwards i flew back to my home in Seattle sipping a 6 dollar latte, and got online to spread lies about Pittsburgh.

If real people from Pittsburgh would have put Pittsburgh as a word they really should have put the pronounciation as "Piks-Burgh"
Pittsburgh – the people who’ve defined it as boring and stupid obviously don’t get out much & are projecting what they see when they're peeking out from under the rock they crawled out of. Pittsburgh is a city that represents cultural diversity, civic pride, respect, and history. It was founded in 1758 and is located at the intersection of 3 rivers (which George Washington found to be advantageous when he was a general; Pittsburgh grew around Fort Pitt). Some people herein have defined Pittsburgh as dirty and ugly, because they have managed by some miracle to grasp that there had been steel-manufacturing here. But it was named the 10th cleanest city in 2007 by Forbes magazine, and is home to the first green-certified historic building, convention center, warehouse, banking facility, and university residence hall; The Green Building Alliance, a non-profit development svc that promotes green community development is in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has consistently ranked high (achieving number 1 many times) in several livability surveys. It has state-of-the-art healthcare (UPMC), reliable public transportation, several neighborhoods, and is a relatively safe city w/friendly people. As far as culture goes, its local public television station WQED has won over 60 Emmys & 12 Peabody Awards (and is where Fred Rogers aired Mister Rogers Neighborhood). George Romero and Tom Savini have not forgotten their ties with Pittsburgh; George Romero has filmed several of his movies in and around...more...
An awesome city with awesome people. A city that loves football "the steelers". It has Awesome food and alot of beer and bars. It has alot of water because its surrounded by three rivers and has four seasons cold, almost winter, winter, and freeze your ass off.
If you go to Pittsburgh bring a jacket.
Pittsburgh is fantastic - I'm from the other side of PA, Bethlehem, north of Philly. Don't get me wrong, Philly's a great place too, but there's this gritty funky charm that appeals to me about P-Burgh.
People talk about the bars, the defunct steel mills, the cranky old people, but they're everywhere; but what about the cool jazz scene, both amateur and professional. I like the people there, my mom still has friends there, and I would live there if not for my premature arthritis which would be aggravated by the weather.
Pittsburgh is pretty cool - I would move there in a second if I could.
