The Feed: New Year’s Resolutions for Pittsburgh
With hope that the world will look a little brighter in 2022, we've been thinking about positive changes we'd like to see in our city and region.

I want more pickleball courts, a Wegmans food market and a Zara!
— Virginia Linn, Editor
More riverfront dining options, water taxis to Washington’s Landing, more green space on the North Shore, a reinvigorated Downtown and more consumer reliance on local farms and producers.
— Betsy Benson, Publisher & Vice President
I’d love to see a New York-style diner make its way to Pittsburgh in 2022. I don’t know what yinzers think a diner is, but if it’s not open until at least 11 p.m. and there aren’t cookies by the door, then it doesn’t count.

I wish drivers would go through the Squirrel Hill Tunnel (or any tunnel) at the speed limit. You don’t need to drop below 30 mph!
— Betty Yee Yates, Prepress Manager
I think better regulation of the Spin Scooters that came to the city this summer would be a great change.
— Madison Jarnot, Editorial Intern
I want winning football and hockey teams!
— Jeanne Moore-Yount, Advertising Director
Surprise! Parents of young children also like to sip on craft brews, which is why I propose adding some breweries equipped with playgrounds. My family and I typically vacation in Lewes, Delaware, where there are several of these unicorns. It was so pleasant to enjoy my drink (responsibly — this is key here) from the comfort of an Adirondack chair while my kiddos played.

A cool-off on housing prices. For the first time in decades, it’s starting to feel like finding a decent place to live at a good price is impossible — or at least arduous. Let’s take a break from new, high-end condos and make sure that the people who make our city great can still afford to live in it.
