All that sports stuff
I know I'll get an earful if I didn't include something about sports in here. Even I, a militant non-sportser, can admit there is an unspoken bond between Pittsburghers and their teams. More often than not, you hear about Steelers fans beating up Browns fans or setting couches on fire. But on a day-to-day basis, you see sports are foundational in Pittsburgh and inspire a camaraderie between the old Pittsburgh and the new.
You may not think you'll miss how some streets come to a sudden end (or just turn into a different street entirely), getting directions entirely through locations of landmarks, or fireworks at 4am in March, but it's all these little quirks that give Pittsburgh its odd intrigue. Our deep love for Mr. Rogers, our penchant for putting French fries on salad (and just about everything else), and the Pittsburgh Left are just a few of the little oddities you won't even know you'll miss until you're gone.
