As someone who used to live in Pittsburgh but moved, all I have to say is be kinder to one another. So much tension and aggression in between people in your city and threads like this are proof. Love your neighbor, try to be respectful of those who have it worse than you, acknowledge your differences, and try to be good.

I agree with the sentiment, though I would add that Internet forums, Twitter etc. don't reflect the real world fortunately. There's a lot of keyboard warriors on the Internet.

Yup.. I got rear-ended on the 31st St Bridge last night. I have an 07 Focus. He had a 17 Civic.
I wanted to pull off onto Herr's Island/Washington Crossing in order to have a closer look at damage and exchange insurance info in a safe place - safer than the 31st St Bridge at 4:45 PM!
He refused to go to the island with me. He refused to exchange insurance info with me.
He said that it wasnt worth his time and he didnt understand why I was making a big deal of things given that I drove "like a $2,000 car"...
I told him that just because I drive a crappy car, that doesn't give him the right to treat me like crap.

I ended up having to call the Police to come because this guy steadfastly refused to give me his license/registration/insurance info even after HE rear-ended ME!

He didn't believe that I'd actually call the police over something so 'minor', but I certainly did.

Pittsburghers love to believe that they're the reincarnation of Mr Rogers (its that Scots-Irish heritage that makes Pghers believe that they're somehow 'God's chosen people'), but this a-hole last night certainly wasn't a neighbor that I'd want.

I'm so sick of the classism and elitism that is taking over Pittsburgh.

That's because yours truly was one of the National Guardsman who was activated to protect the City
I worked for Joint Forces Headquarters so got to do a lot for that operation - working out of Hunt Armory, patrolling the streets in Humvees, patrolling the Allegheny River with the Coast Guard.

Have a degree struggling and then they see mayor east end at a ribbon cutting for a new high end housing development while not being pro law enforcement. Itís made us weak and unstable.
It causes A LOT of resentment when those same elites tell us working class folks, who are getting left further and further behind, that we're "privileged" and therefore not allowed to voice our dissent or we'll simply be dismissed as "deplorable racists" who need to get on board with the current program.
Its so ironic that its the elites who tell the working man that the working man is the privileged one. Its sick.

Crusties were here way before G20, this is somewhat recent. Maybe last couple of years and it's worse in warm months of course.

Not really that much tension here. Pittsburgh is a relatively safe and respectful city. But thanks for the advice...

This is true, what's being reported here is not demonstrative of the city as a whole. Town is a lot safer IMO than it ever was.

No there really isn't at all despite what two or three posters like to try to push..... I live in Bellevue and have never had anyone look down on me for saying I live there.

Same with the supposed tensions between working and professional class people.
