Pittsburgh has been named the 16th best skyline in the world by this site.
While you may be all, “SIXTEENTH! We’re at least top ten!” keep in mind that this is a worldwide ranking. There are only five US cities in the top 18 and Pittsburgh is fourth behind Chicago, New York and Seattle.
But one thing is for sure. No other city in the world has as remarkable and breathtaking an entry into the city as the Burgh does through the Fort Pitt Tunnel.
I remember as a child and teenager going to my grandmother’s house every Saturday for dinner in Bridgeville and no matter what time it was when we were on our way home, we would all sit up straight when we hit the tunnel and then just be in awe as we shot out of it.
Every single time. Every week. For years and years.
I still sit up straight like that. I’m still in awe of it. And I defy anyone to drive it and not feel the same.
For those of you that haven’t been able to see it for a while, this video almost does it justice.
