Readers’ Poll: Best Reason to Stay in Pittsburgh



Readers’ Poll: Best Reason to Stay in Pittsburgh: Readers chose “the people” as the best reason to stay in Pittsburgh.

So, how about a slogan to go along with this: “Pittsburgh: We’re Not A Bunch of Phonies.” As a town we’re true to ourselves. We say what we mean, and you can trust us to mean what we say. We’re the real deal and, from what visitors and locals say, we’re real friendly. Need directions? “It’s easier just to follow me.” As a group we’re known for working hard, helping out and being generous. What’s ours is yours! (Except for our parking spots. Go find your own.)
