Try out mckeesport
The longest I ever lived in Pittsburgh was 3 months and even I know that's a bad idea
It's just so depressed, that area died when the Pittsburgh steel industry died. The crime rate is stupidly high, you have like a 1 in 40 chance of being a victim of a violent crime. It's one of the most dangerous cities in America.
What's weird is that it's surrounded by okay areas, West Mifflin (where I work) and White Oak are both great residential areas in terms of crime rate. But McKeesport is just a **** hole.
Or McKees Rocks. Saw some zombies in daylight there this past summer.
I try to get coffee at this one place in Homewood at least once a week. They've got good lunch sandwiches, too. Everyday Cafe.
Anyway, yeah, I'm not sure what the Avs would want from the Pens if it isn't Brassard. @Peat
I actually live in mckeesport lived in white oak too and its like living in a completely different world. Honestly, in mckeesport just dont be a dumbass and run around by yourself. I know everyone for the most part so im not as worried but if you have to visit stay away from midtown, Crawford, and Harrison village. Those are the three no nos. Port Vue is nice too!! But the police are corrupt. If youre black, have tinted windows, or play loud music youre getting pulled over.
In 15-16 Bonino had 10 points in his first 40 games. So id agree his start was poop.
From then on he scored 56 in 103 regular season (44 point pace) and 25 in 45 playoffs (46 point pace).
Which with kessel is what i was hoping from Brassard. Maybe a tad less but ballpark.
Pittsburgh is one of the most beautiful cities and I'll never move from here. I've been everywhere you can think of for hockey and traveled since I was like 5. The closest city that I fell in love with was actually Montreal. There is a nice charm about Montreal. Between cost of living and everything this city has to offer, I still think it's underrated even though a million websites try to call it the most underrated city.
But I will admit - the winters are brutal because we don't get a lot of sun and it feels depressing. If Pittsburgh had San Diego weather, this would be my utopia. This winter has been a steady 25-35 degrees and gray. At least it isn't snowing, but the rain has been so annoying.
Pretty sure we set the Pittsburgh record for rain this year.
Imagine San Diego weather that is in San Diego though.
Would any of y'all be so kind to give me a short bullet list of our December, the trade front, and divisional news?
I have been so busy with work this season and actually took a new job where my commute ends up being almost 3 hours a day - so most games that I get to watch (up to about 75% of them) are after the fact with what English majors would call reading/viewing for pleasure versus close-reading/viewing. As such I don't know what to make of the Pens right now other than what seems to be the normal dynamic of our 1/2 lines, Sully's pet project (which is fine with me so long as ZAR doesn't go full blown Kunitz), and our normal first-half of the season goalie conundrum.
Thanks in advance -
...He's got us on cost of living though....
But like, in number of hours I can be on coast, in mountains, nearly to LA or up in forests.
Depends on the neighborhood you're talking about. There are a lot more good or better neighborhoods than bad neighborhoods, but there are some really bad neighborhoods. I think one big positive about Pittsburgh is that there are quite a few top notch suburbs, like Mt. Lebo, Fox Chapel and Upper St. Claire. It's not like Pittsburgh is surrounded by slums or anything like that.
Dont worry all the snow and below zero temps will come in the usual February, March, and beginning of April. They always do.
- Second highest number of points behind Tampa ending with a 7 game win streak
- Line 1 and Pairing 1 - amazing. Special teams - both top 5 for the league in the month. Goaltending - amazing. Everybody else - along for the ride.
- A rumour about Pietrangelo, Rutherford said he wanted more from Brassard, elsewise quiet
- Washington and NYI had good Decembers, Blue Jackets had an okay one, there's basically no point in caring about the rest of our division for the rest of the year unless they want to trade us nice stuff
I’d rather pay 300-400 dollars more for a room to not live in Pittsburgh TBH.
Only so much PA folk I can take. All my childhood friends are on drugs or military.
I was looking at real estate and or rentals there...I can't imagine jobs paying enough to justify it. It's only slightly less expensive.
Hags must be enjoying himself.
But I know @ColePens didn't pay $3.54 s gallon for fuel this morning like me.
Sewickley heights too. Shady side.
mt lebo? fox chapel? upper st claire? all those places suck
I go to a reservation and get it for like 3.00 at the most.
Central PA is awesome. I miss the city on occasion, but I’m more than happy being here. Businesses aren’t all shut down, people work and are friendly, etc. Hard drugs exist but not nearly as prevalent as western PA...party drugs are another story, haha.
I’m also still in the Pittsburgh sports market, so no blackout games.
You can make a decent salary in Pittsburgh and be "Pittsburgh rich". You can make a GREAT salary in San Diego and be poor.
I live like a king in Pittsburgh and I would probably be broke as a joke in a city like San Francisco.
That change in Bonino's scoring came about because Geno went down after about a 10 game stretch of HMK being the best line in hockey. Bonino stepped in and got not only Geno's linemates, but his zone starts and minutes, and the line kept on producing.
Unless Geno goes down again, Brass will score more like 1st half Bonino.
Well he already has the Bonino level of wingers that he had, its a matter of chemistry and adjusting expectations for slightly less minutes
Shadyside is within city limits, they aren't really a suburb of Pittsburgh. I've never been to Sewickley Heights before, but from looking up some info on it, that one for sure counts too.
....uh, what? Sounds like a very odd take to have, they may be filled with preppy rich people, but they're top quality areas.
Yeah.. he picked like my 3 favorite spots.
