We lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania for a few years while Mom was in graduate school at Carnegie Mellon University. We lived in the Squirrel Hill neighborhood, which it turns out is Mr. Roger’s neighborhood.

We rented for the first few years but ended up buying a wonderful old house there, with a basement, two main floors and an inhabitable attic, plus an I-beam support in the basement roof to hold up the rest of the house. The basement walls were 18” thick concrete. The house was built in the early 1900s, presumaby by someone who was good at acquiring building materials.

We liked Pittsburgh and were a bit sad to leave.
