Re: Pittsburgh's North Side

George G. ·
My parents lived and grew up on the Northside from the 1920's to the 1950's. I was born in the city and baptized on the Northside. My grandparents Northside house is now in a dangerous slum area. There are many great ethnic eateries in the area, especially German in the Northside neighborhood of Deutschtown. Max's Tavern is a great spot for German fare and beer.

Glad you made it to my hometown. I was there a few months ago and also snapped a few photos of the Pitt Panther. Did you get to the Frick or the Carnegie Museum nearby? Lots of connections between your hometown of NYC and Pittsburgh during the industrial gilded age.
