Great view! On a bluff above the Allegheny River just across from downtown Pittsburgh, these colorful old houses looks like a little street somewhere in Europe, which is pretty much what it was patterned after.
But I couldn’t decide which was better—the row of houses, or the view of the whole scene, sky, houses, hillside, river and all.

Houses are tightly packed here; the parking lot was at one point a home as well. The weathered concrete sidewalk sprouts autumn wildflowers.
Just a typical street running down a hill to cross the railroad tracks, then back up and over the other side, and many other narrow streets running parallel up and down and over the hills, and more narrow streets crossing those with their grids of power lines above, and houses and businesses crowding close to sidewalks and to each other, one hundred years and more after they were built in a European style by and for immigrants to carry on their lives in a new country.
This is Glendale, PA, next door to Carnegie.
