It’d be silly to think that by biking around the streets for a few hours, I’d be able to capture the essence of a neighborhood. Honestly, I don’t know what I’ll be able to capture besides a a couple pictures and some random thoughts by just spending a few hours in a place. My goal is not to provide a thumbs-up/thumbs-down rating of each neighborhood, or to list all the cultural spots, or to take every beautiful photograph, or to talk with every resident and get a true understanding of each neighborhood. I don’t think one can get a true understanding of a place by being there for an hour, or a day, or a week or even a year. My goal is…well maybe I don’t quite have one. I want to see Pittsburgh, neighborhood by neighborhood, day by day, and then, maybe, I can begin to put together some goals/themes/ideas for this blog. But for now, it’s just one neighborhood at a time.
