You know how the rest of the song goes, right?

I tried to capture some Pittsburgh images the last few days. I took a bunch of Sq. Hill but not came out looking like much except for the one of the Sq. Hill Cafe, lovingly known as the Cage.

I went up there this morning to do some shopping and lower Murray Ave. was shut down tight. I decided early that I would not be honoring passover and I was hungry. I wanted a bagel or something. I may as well have been looking for a hooker on Falwell’s college campus.

Squirrel Hill has always been Jewish but it is really much, much more Orthodox now. It is a very noticeable change.

I went up to Forbes area and got a bagel and lox, and made it to Radio Shack.
