It's no secret Pittsburgh has some of the richest sports history in the country. Each month we ask one of our favorite Pittsburghers:
What else makes this city great?
Live: South Hills
Work: East Liberty
How Long: 1 year
WHERE DID YOU GROW UP?
WHEN DID YOU MOVE HERE AND WHY?
Moved away for college to Savannah, then found my home away from home in New York City for several years. Ultimately, I felt a draw to be back in Pittsburgh and moved back in early 2013. Pittsburgh is a different city than when I left, for the better, and that’s been terrifically exciting to experience.
BESIDES OUR SPORTS, WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES PGH GREAT?
Well, I mean, Heniz 57. But in all seriousness, there is this raw energy happening in Pittsburgh right now, where I see great small things happening all around the city, not just one buzzy neighborhood. It’s shops, galleries, restaurants; things that easily could be popped in Manahattan but chose to open here. It’s an interesting time for Pittsburgh and I love being apart of it.
