30. it's more than 5 from mine ;)
I can see the buildings of East Liberty from my second floor windows over the houses on the other side of the street though.

I think lots of city neighborhoods particularly in the East End really have been doing well the past few years as the universities attract more people, more grad students, and more high tech jobs for them to stick around after college and buy homes in the city. I know my neighborhood (without giving anything away...I want you to guess) used to be half Germans in part of the neighborhood and half Italians in the other half, but now they're all dying out and being replaced by younger hipper families into all the Hulton and Hulton style homes in the neighborhood.

Yeah there are places like Braddock, but even those in their own way are even pulling themselves up now...The city itself, even the formerly so called 'bad neighborhoods' are coming up. The ugly projects coming down, and the new townhouse designed style ones going up (like on Penn and Negley) which give people much more pride in themselves and in their homes. Heck they look pretty nice too.

There's no question that Pittsburgh is holding out really well through this recession, and is going good directions. we just need to keep the pressure on local government to keep it up rather than slip into more corruption and graft.
