Pittsburgh's History of Hard WorkCouncilman Sala Udin's illustrated a snapshot of history with his introduction of the Pittsburgh Works legislation on March 3. 1999. Our city has been about Hard Work. Sala's grandfather worked in a mill on the South Side.
- Ordinary Hard Work
- Union Town, Second to None
- Our parents and grandparents locked arm and arm and were together
Our LegacyThe legacy of hard work runs throughout the entire region. What follows is more of a look at the South Side, and it builds upon that regional mind-set. What makes each part of this region different is due to our typography, but we are more similar than not.
The South Side Is NOT the NorthsideThe South Side's quality of life rings true with a sense of community and neighborhood balance.

Notes:Too bad The Public Theater is leaving the North Side for Downtown. And, as for the Shootz and Penn Brewery comparison: shrug. You can't win them all. Shootz closed many years ago. It was a big billiards hall mixed in with a TGIF. Remember Woodson's too, once in Station Square.
