Oh, beautiful, the city view

Yesterday I took my dad and my kid up the incline so we could get a great view of the city. I ended up with some nice shots. I only wish I had thought to have brought my camera; the iphone does not do the view justice.

Nice view of Heinz Field and the three rivers (mostly the Ohio and Allegheny)

The edge of the Point, with Downtown and the Mon River


Mostly the Point

The Ohio



We ate at the Grandview Saloon, which I have not been to, I am guessing, since before J was born. We were fortunate that the waiter got this nice shot of the three of us with the view in the background.

We also took a Gateway Clipper one-hour cruise, which allowed me to get a handful of nice city shots as well.

The Point from where the three rivers meet


The Point from the Allegheny (because you have to see if from three sides)

Pittsburgh, how I love (most of) thee!

I love The Point, in general, but it's so much better now that they have the fountain working again.
