How Pittsburgh got 90 neighborhoods, Mt. Oliver’s independence, and Downtown lions

Katie Blackley
90.5 WESA

Our third episode revisits stories about why Pittsburgh looks the way it does. It goes into why we have 90 distinct neighborhoods, and talks about annexation (or a lack thereof in Mt. Oliver borough’s case). Plus, we look at a fun architectural feature on one of our most historic downtown streets.

The Good Question! Podcast is sponsored by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
