My favorite and the most comprehensive book I've ever found about Pittsburgh is this one, but I will definitely need to check out the one you recommended! The one in my link also makes for a great coffee table book! My friends and other guests love thumbing through the pages with all the amazing pictures.

On the fashion side include a set of boots for city streets with slush traps. The slush sits on top and looks like solid snow, but really you have a 2-3 foot ditch that's filled with disgusting ice cold filthy water.

I like some long underwear as well for the holy shit cold days that come eventually.

Depending on your house you may look at a roof rake so that a large snowstorm does not cause serious damage.

If you have cold spots in your house, use a fan to guide central heat there. Also I HIGHLY recommend these window insulation kits, they will save you hundreds of dollars on heating and usually allow rooms to get hotter as well.

Get yourself Julia Sahni's Classic Indian Cooking book. It's a great place to start. If you're primarily into veg, another place to go would be Devi's Lord Krishna's Cuisine which is a positively massive cookbook that is great and vedic (no onions, etc. only hing).

Also, Manjula's Kitchen has some good videos.

I don't even know where to begin....except here

You really need to learn how to use HTML/CSS. Its extremely easy to build a great looking very simple site like yours with some basic skills.

Learn how to reduce the size of your images. Images should be as tiny as possible. (In file size, not in resolution or quality)

You have no navigation other than using browser forward/back buttons. Good navigation is a key to a decent site.

Yellow background? absolutely not.

The above should give you a start, but I would honestly get a good book and start the site over from scratch.

  1. Depending on how much work you want to do you can still find homes for sale inside the city for that price. If you are looking to rent everything should be in your budget as well. Also when you say Pitt do you mean University of Pittsburgh or just Pittsburgh? Pitt is the school, PGH is the city, PIT is the airport. [its a quick way for people to clock you're new if you use those interchangeably]
    There are a ton of other posts about the real estate market in town and its really a sellers market right now. We have a ton of new-build apartments that have gone up recently and are expensive for what Pittsburghers are used to paying for rent but are in-line with your budget.
  2. Amazon - seriously. Unless you want spring for some reason they have this 12in foam mattress for $190 which will be cheaper than anything you can get locally.
  3. This is a tough one because it can vary so much. I would research the type of car you want to buy, then look comparable ones up through Kelly Blue Book or AutoTrader and go from there
  4. Verizon FiOS is the best speeds per price if where you decide to live gets the service - and honestly if you were between a couple places and theyre close go with the one that gets FiOS. You can expect to pay around $100/mo for 100/100mpbs fiber. $60 will get you around 50/50mpbs. FiOS is the only provider that matches upload/download speeds.

Does anyone have an Alexa, use the Pittsburgh Bus regularly, and willing to try a new skill I made? I was hoping to get some feedback on my first attempt at it, ease of use and feature's that would be useful.


u/bababooey_bababooey_ · 3 pointsr/pittsburgh

Well I bought [this one] ( around 1 and a half years ago. I love it. It's not the most expensive mattress in the world but I really like it. My ex gf always raved about it. I have it on 2 box springs side by side on a metal frame.

You take it out of the package and give it time to expand and within 10 minutes you will be like 'wow' and within 3 hours you will be like 'how the hell did that come out of that box?'.

u/SoftShoeShuffler · 3 pointsr/pittsburgh

We have this one at our coffee table:
It's a very well done then and now book, love flipping through it every now and then. The terrible towel is a good idea. Maybe a little figurine of the incline or the Cathedral of Learning would be a nice memoir.

u/Extrasherman · 1 pointr/pittsburgh

Thanks but that really didn't yield any results. The first link has a great amount of pics of the city and it's immediate suburbs. The second link is all recent photos of Millvale. I'm probably just going to get the book.

u/burritoace · 4 pointsr/pittsburgh

This book is pretty neat as well. I believe it was just re-printed recently, I found a cheap copy a few weeks ago after searching for quite a while.

u/DT81888 · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

You'd probably enjoy Meet you in Hell then. I just ordered your suggestion - thanks for the tip!

u/oldbkenobi · 1 pointr/pittsburgh

You should check out this great book when you get a chance. We are all paying a lot for "free" parking, and those costs are often unfairly passed on to people who don't or can't drive to subsidize drivers.

u/BigVideoGamer69 · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

Why would you expect the city to waste space that could be put to a better use on parking for you? That would be a waste of valuable space, which is in short supply in such a geographically small downtown area.
This book is specifically about free parking, but addresses how wasteful in general parking is.
Long story short, expecting a city that you don't even pay taxes towards to provide something for you is an incredibly entitled mindset. Maybe cities aren't for you.
e: Actually, Houston just might be the city for you:

"Cut Me Loose".. It's an autobiography written by a girl from squirrel hill.. Technically a lot of it takes part in NYC, but starts in Pittsburgh. I haven't read it yet, but it's been getting a lot of praise lately, and she was featured on with Katie Couric.

u/EPluribusUnumIdiota · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

My wife got me THIS, it's a great book.

u/minus9 · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

This book has some great photos of Pittsburgh history. The photos showing buildings downtown before and after being cleaned give you a good feeling for how bad it was.

To be honest as much as we all hate to admit it, we are part of Appalachia. We're over 400 miles from the coast so we can't be East Coast, but we don't live near plains and farm land so calling us "Mid-west" is also wrong (plus I don't want to be in the same area as Ohio). Between the two is Appalachia which we are squarely inside of although probably the best part of. [Some even call Pittsburgh the 'Paris of Appalachia'] ( [relevent as well] (

I'm looking at purchasing a reverse osmosis system for my new house. Relatively cheap on Amazon, not too difficult to install.

Here's one I'm looking at:

u/jedav · 1 pointr/pittsburgh

These seem to confirm that impression.

u/mrsrtz · 3 pointsr/pittsburgh

You put the name in square brackets [ ] and the link in parentheses( )



u/Excelius · 1 pointr/pittsburgh

Technically, you're still in Appalachia.

At least one author has called Pittsburgh The Paris of Appalachia

u/talldean · 3 pointsr/pittsburgh

Uh, a new Black & Decker sells for $30, shipped. Don't rent it for $20!

u/The_Year_of_Glad · 2 pointsr/pittsburgh

In addition to the other stuff already mentioned, maybe a copy of the Three Rivers Cookbook (vol. 1, 2, or 3) and something Mr. Rogers-related?

Edit: Can also get the cookbooks directly here. And there's a fourth volume I didn't know about...

u/catskul · 12 pointsr/pittsburgh

> E2: Also, no stickers. I'm going to have to sign up to work the polling place next time if that's what it takes to get stickers!

I bought my own on Amazon and delivered it to my polling place this morning. It's about $20 for 1000 stickers.

When I brought them in, everyone was so excited. I think at first they thought I was some sort of sticker official! : )

Window Insulation Kit.

Their ugly and a pain in the ass, but they really do reduce the amount of cold coming through your windows. You don't have to cover every window in the house, just the ones that matter, like one right next to your bed or maybe your bathroom.
