Shortcut to Pius Street Shortcut to Pius Street The other way is all uphill too. Like many hilly cities, Pittsburgh is full of municipal steps that were established decades, even a century, ago when most people walked. These steps are quite a production, and despite their precipitous nature they are somewhat safer than trying to walk along the street. I’d been trying to find a place to stop to be able to photograph them at a slightly better angle. I’m photographing through my windshield, and the railroad line that runs past Edwards Way is right over my head where I am on the street in this photo. The street obviously takes a sharp curve to the left, and there is always someone right behind me. But parking is at a premium in this tightly populated place; even on Edwards where it appears there is only one car, it is illegally parked. So I got the best I could with one hand while only slowing down a bit while driving.
