the bluff

Bluff is perhaps the most aptly named neighborhood in Pittsburgh, because it’s a bluff. That is, ‘a high steep bank, usually formed by river erosion.’ Here’s a shot from the top of the bluff of the Monongahela, the river that did the eroding.

Looking towards the east along Blvd of the Allies, you can see the Birmingham Bridge in the background. In the foreground is the home of the Duquesne Tamburitzans, America’s, ‘longest-running multicultural song and dance company.’ They tour all over the country; if you happen to be one of my Billings, Montana readers, they’ll be in your town on Tuesday.
