  A few unique aspects of Pittsburgh I admire are... how it is a big city with a small town feel, people are friendly and the scenery is beautiful, which is an important thing for me since I’m used to more country settings. With all the fun things to do and history to see, Pittsburgh is by far my favorite city.
