This blog captures three things I love: writing, photography, and Pittsburgh.

#133 - Ardmore Boulevard
Old yinzers don't know any state road route numbers just long since retired road names, landmarks, and nicknames of roads. And will repeat some combination of the three when trying to explain directions until you understand.
'You got some good pizza aht there on Ardmore Boulevard.'
'Ardmore. By where you work. Good pizza!'
'I dont know. Ardmore. Up from Turtle Crick.'
'Yeah. That's it.'
I grew up in the depths of the Mon Valley. Schooled in dreary Erie. 2.5 years of purgatory in upstate NY. Made my triumphant return to Pittsburgh about seven years ago and have been loving every minute.
