SNAPSHOTS: The Strip District

Strip District
DSCF4176 Strip District Strip District Pittsburgh

In the shadow of Downtown Pittsburgh, you'll find a hive of activity - historically an area of mills, factories, warehouses and even of a manufacturing base of H. J. Heinz. Today the Strip District is alive with outdoor vendors, an eclectic mix of food stores to full wall artwork, where former warehouses are turned into marketplaces, nightclubs and restaurants. In fact it's very much like the area and spirit you'll find around Detroit's own Eastern Market. We had a super quick walk around when we ate the the infamous Primanti Brothers back in the summer of last year, it's always a place we head back to, walk or drive around while killing time. 

Admittedly driving around downtown and the Strip District makes me fall in love a little more with the city. Far too often do I crave those infamous oversized coleslaw and fries sandwiches to the views, the hills, hopefully we'll be heading back there soon until then this snapshot post will suffice. I have far so much exploring left to do there.

It's always worth a visit if you happen to be in the 'burgh.
