Pittsburgh: City of Bridges

Let’s Learn From The Past: City of Bridges
-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
, March 24, 2011

This is a neat little article that was published by the staff at the Senator John Heinz History Center, located in Pittsburgh’s Strip District.  Some facts mentioned in the article: Pittsburgh has 446 bridges (more than any other city in the WORLD); the Smithfield Street Bridge is the oldest steel bridge in the United States; the city has the only trio of identical bridges in the WORLD (Roberto Clemente, Andy Warhol and Rachel Carson bridges).

I am so proud to be a Pittsburgh native.  It’s a wonderful city that boasts an incredibly rich history and unique innovations.
