National Geographic Article: Pittsburgh - Mon, 07/21/03 9:26 PM

I just got my new National Geographic today in the mail. Inside was a small feature called "ZipUSA, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: 15222, Come Hungry". The first page of the article is just a big beautiful picture of a Primanti's sandwich spread over two pages. Luckily, they had the picture online. Behold! The link below:

Also check out the other wonderful pictures (typical of Nat'l Geo) on the left hand side.

Briefly mentioned in the magazine article (though not online) is another Roadfood listed place, Enrico Biscotti.

Certainly sounds like this zip code would be worthy of a pilgrimage!

Enjoy vicariously!

I have subscribed to the National Geographic for 40 years and I have kept each issue. It is my favorite bathroom mag.

I have not received the current issue, but when I do, I wll read the article indicated.

The Strip District in Pittsburgh is definitely worth visiting and experiencing. I feel blessed that Pennsylvania has so many great Roadfood stops including South Philly and The Strip District in the two biggest cities in the state.

Primanti's rocks!! So does Wholey's around the corner for a big ol fried fish sandwich. Then go across the street to Pennsylvania Macaroni and get all the Italian fixin's for your next meal.

Thanks, Meowzart, for the great Nat'l Geographic link; it also took me to a "visit Pittsburgh" site that was very helpful, as we're doing our amusement park summer tour this weekend - first Herseypark & then Kennywood in Pittsburgh!
