Pittsburgh is the second largest city in the U.S. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the county seat of Allegheny County. Regionally, it anchors the largest urban area of both Appalachia and the Ohio River Valley. Nationally, it is the 22nd largest urban area in the United States. The population of the city in 2010 was 305,704, while that of the seven-county metropolitan area stood at 2,356,285. Downtown Pittsburgh retains substantial economic influence, ranking at 25th in the nation for jobs within the urban core and 6th in job density. The characteristic shape of Pittsburgh's central business district is a triangular tract carved by the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, which form the Ohio River. The city features 151 high-rise buildings, 446 bridges, two inclined railways, and a pre-revolutionary fortification. Pittsburgh is known colloquially as "the City of Bridges" and "the Steel City" for its many bridges and former steel manufacturing base.
Locals refer to the interstates fanning out from downtown Pittsburgh as the "parkways." I-376 is both the "parkway east" connecting to I-76 (Pennsylvania Turnpike) and the "parkway west" connecting to I-79, the Pittsburgh International Airport, the Ohio end of the Turnpike and I-80. The "parkway north" is I-279 connecting to I-79. The "crosstown" is I-579 allowing access to the heart of downtown, the Liberty Tunnels and the CONSOL Energy Center. Expressways such as Route 28 and Route 22 also carry traffic from downtown to the northeast and western suburbs, respectively. I-70, I-79 and I-76 (the Turnpike) roughly form a triangular-shaped "beltway" with I-80 and I-68 within the city's media market's northern and southern boundaries. Several suburban Turnpike spurs along the Monongahela River, the Airport and near Greensburg also help traffic flow. Navigation around the city and its suburbs can also be accomplished via the non-expressway Pittsburgh/Allegheny County Belt System. A planned highway system called the Mon-Fayette/Southern Beltway project would allow access from the south and southwest of the city via a limited-access tolled expressway system. The projects are in the planning stages with some sections already open to traffic. The projects are being planned by The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
"Several years ago on our way back from Ohio, we passed through Pittsburgh to get to Philadelphia. We decided to make a stop as we were on the road for a good 5 hours straight. One of the appraisers said I heard a good place to eat was Six Pen Kitchen, so we decided to check it out. I was amazed of how well the food was and the atmosphere. While sitting there at the table with the other appraisers, I noticed a gentleman at the adjacent table talking about his insurance claim. I couldn't hear the type of vehicle, but by what he was saying I knew he was dealing with a total loss claim. Me being the kind of appraiser that likes to help customers out, I leaned over and said "excuse me are you dealing with an insurance claim?" The guy said "yah and the insurance company is really messing me over." We began to talk about the claim and what he was really hoping to get out of it. I told him we were all certified auto appraisers and that we are nationwide, so any location we have him covered. I gave him my business card and he said he would call me after the weekend. When I got back to our office on Monday; I already had a voicemail from this guy. Not only was he happy to have met me, he wanted to hire us for his total loss appraisal."
