Pittsburgh Perspective

I recently spent a week in Pittsburgh, PA.  Primarily a business trip but I had an opportunity to visit family in nearby Steubenville, Ohio and to walk the area of Pittsburgh in the vicinity of the meeting site.

The hotel is directly across from the Point State Park, locally known as The Point.  The park sits at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers that come together to form the Ohio river.

The entry to the park frames a preview of the fountain with sweeping lines and geometric buttresses.

The weather was exceptionally good and the city was in bloom.  Dining alfresco was the order of the day.

A walking tour also proved to be worthwhile.  All in all a very pleasant experience in an urban environment.

If you are in Pittsburgh get out and see the city.  It will be worth your time.
