I was born here. I lived until the age of 5 near Cobbs Creek but at 101 North Millick Street. I returned to West Oak Lane in 1969 to live with my Grandmother and aunt at 1960 Renovo Street until I left Penn State University first Chester, then Delaware County Campus for the U.S. Air Force in 1971. I now live in England, but visit on and off over the years on active duty and now retired. I worked at the Bulletin, KYW Newsradio, the Associated Press and experienced WCAU's Traffic Alert aircraft for two weeks and wire photo operations at the AP which was based in the Bulletin Newspaper building. I eventually became a broadcaster and journalist while in the air force as well as a policeman and travelled the world. My British wife loves visiting our relatives and sightseeing various places...
I live in the city and I love it! There is always things going on. There is no lack of museums to look through and there is always shows and concerts that come through Pittsburgh. I suggest using the bus system to get around. They come regularly and can get anywhere in the city on them, just make sure to plan your bus trip out or it might get confusing. Driving here is complicated due to narrow streets, one way streets, and mostly the hills and bridges. However, the hills and bridges do make it easy to get spectacular views, no matter where you are.
