Pittsburgh, back in the day, had fifteen funicular inclines that would transport people/items from the rivers to the communities that were built on the bluffs overlooking the valley.
Today, only two remain in operation, the Duquesne and the Monongahela. It’s less than a couple of miles between the two, and when you arrive to Mount Washington at the summit, spectacular views of downtown await.
The charm of this neighborhood is enjoyed as you walk from one overlook to the next, taking in the many views the city offers.
The incline only costs $2.50 each way, exact change required. Get your quarters ready, and ride the inclines of Pittsburgh.
The perfect way to become familiar with the Steele City. https://player.vimeo.com/video/130644570
