A part of Belt's City Anthology Series. "This collection is stimulating for insiders and outsiders alike, a portrait . . . designed to be from-the-streets, warts-and-all."--Pittsburgh City Paper

Pittsburgh is ever-changing--once dusted with soot from the mills, parts of the city now gleam with the polish of new technologies, and little remains of what had been there before. The essays and artwork in this anthology aim to capture the surprising, elusive stories that have come to define this city in transition. Editor Eric Boyd brings together over forty essays, poems, photographs, and artworks from Pittsburgh natives and transplants. In these pages, you'll find:

- LaToya Ruby Frazier, Portraits of Braddock by LaToya Ruby Frazier, MacArthur-award winning photographer

- Melanie Cox McCluskey on the Mt. Washington Monument

- Paintings of Steelers fans and the Jenkins Arcade

- 15-year-old Nico Chiod, chronicling the doings of the North Side Banjo Club.

"Everyone in this book," writes Boyd, "is talking about the city, the things surrounding it; all of the pieces have been created with experience, intimacy, and personality. This book, I hope, will speak to you, not at you. Because we all know this city is changing. We're just not exactly sure what that means."

A perfect collection for anyone looking for an insider's view of the City of Bridges, told by the people who live and work there. Or anyone looking for their first peek into one of America's most storied cities.
