I like my news clips with deep dramatic music.

Guess what? It's still a city of desolation.
I've been to both places, they're both festering rust-belt hellholes.

See, the thing is, no, they're not. It's great that you stopped at a Pittsburgh rest stop ten years ago or whatever, but if you seriously think it's in as bad of shape as Detroit than you're more committed to this "boring and wrong" thing than I thought.
Torture the Artist
No, really, from USA Today naming Pittsburgh's skyline the second most beautiful thing in the country:
"In a nation with a wealth of stunning cities full of compelling stories, ranking Pittsburgh as the No. 2 beauty spot is perhaps our most surprising choice. But the Steel City's aesthetic appeal is undeniable, as is its very American capacity for renewal. Standing atop Mount Washington, the steep hill that rises giddily on the city's south side, sightseers enjoy the unforgettable panorama of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers flowing together to create the mighty Ohio, that waterway so essential in the nation's settlement. The rivers cup downtown's lustrous Golden Triangle, where landmark skyscrapers thrust upward like rockets. At night, lights twinkle on no fewer than 15 bridges. Almost as breathtaking as the vista itself is the urban renewal that made it possible. A century ago, a pall of smoke lay so thick over town that streetlights burned all day. As Pittsburgh continues an evolutionary course that has taken it from trading post to transportation hub to industrial goliath, we salute its reinvention into one of America's most scenic and livable communities. In the life of a city, there's nothing more beautiful, or inspiring, than a renaissance."
Seriously glasseye you are the most worthless person here and you need to fuck off. You have never and will never add a goddamn thing.
