Cheer Up Pittsburgh

I'm not giving up on the canal boat idea. Destination Cleveland.     

And then there's Smithfield St. and 6th Avenue.   In German.

The view here:  Standing in across from Mr. Simonds' mountain glade (Mellon Square), looking down up 6th Avenue.   In 1787

A little later (circa 1815)

Later still. Is that a green roof on that building in the foreground?   (Note: corrected angle inserted):

I'm glad Google Earth has a sunlit frame for Mellon Square, all the more so after watching this:

Mellon Square: A Modern Masterpiece from Melissa McMasters on Vimeo.

Please Pittsburgh, watch that video.  You will be in a better mood.
