Primanti's is possibly the only "legend" growing and making the cut year after year.
Pittsburgh has been slowly displacing its residents for years due to "gentrification" .. the idea that a $65,000 rowhouse in a blighted neighborhood is now somehow magically worth $225,000 because of granite countertops is absurd, but that's the problem with this city: it's become inaccessible to the people who grew up here.
