Re: “A survey of Mayor Bill Peduto's nicknames, as seen in responses to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette stories

Very few people have a problem with bike lane concept. The problem is when you have 4 lanes of traffic and you remove two of them and convert them to bicycle lanes only. This inevitably makes traffic worse.

Re: “North Side vs. Everybody

I rarely was over here my whole life except for Pirates and Steelers games and trips to AGH to visit sick relatives. Started to work on the North Side last year and I'm here 5 days a week. I love it

Re: “Independence for whom?

The Fourth of July is upon us. A day when many celebrate Freedom and others reflect on what Freedom would look like when it is finally won. Yes. Speed the day!

Re: “I grew up in Oakdale and Sturgeon, Pa. Could you tell me more about the history of windy Noblestown Road and the tiny village that also bears the name?

Noblestown Road meanders all the way to the West End of Pittsburgh, where it becomes South Main St. I grew up directly up from where Noblestown Road forms a "Y" with South main and Walbridge St., the street I grew up on. it's not much, but like the origin or mouth of a stream, I can say I grew up where the great Noblestown Road ends.

Re: “My birth certificate says I was born at the Roselia Hospital, but I can't find where it was. Can you tell me more about it?

My Grandfather was born there on August 9,1902 his name on birth card was Russell Gibb... i would like to know how to obtain the birth card as i know it listed a fathers name..i have no idea what name his mother went by...as the girls chose a name to be called back then.
I know she left 6 months after my grandfather was born and took him with her. Only to be adopted out by some other place. I would like to finish our family tree and i can't do it without this information. Please contact me if you can tell me how to get his birth card or any other info that could help. Thank you!

Re: “How Pittsburgh is at the forefront of HIV awareness, prevention, and care

I have no idea if it still exists, but those of us who came of age in the 80s and 90s in Pittsburgh had a phenomenal resource in the Pitt Men's Study.

We were very lucky to have both the information and assistance that program provided, a resource many other cities did not.

Re: “Is there any significance to the street names in the Oakland/hospital area (McKee, Meyran, etc.)?

Thanks for the article, Chris. Do you have any information regarding the history of Euler Way/Alley running between and parallel to Forbes and Fifth Avenue from Halket to Atwood Street. Our Euler family lore believes it was named for my g-g-great grandparents Nicholas William Euler, 1826-1868 and Barbara Euler (nee Greenawald), 1830-1910. Ive noticed that it was not on an 1872 map, but appears on an 1889 map. William was a blacksmith and wheelmaker in Pittsburgh, who immigrated from Germany to Pittsburgh in 1849. His wife Barbara was born in Pittsburgh. I have not yet confirmed whether it was named for them and the reason, if it was. Thank you. Mark E. Keller

Re: “Picklesburgh, table for one please

It took me a long time to admit to myself that I have sensory issues and have always had them. Dealing with radiation fatigue the past year has amplified them, pun intended. Even when I'm not fatigued I am sensitive to sound and light. Thanks for bringing some light--and lightness--to this issue. It's not just for kids anymore!

Re: “North Side vs. Everybody

Well written! I lived in the south for nearly 10 years and missed what I grew up with tremendously. We truly have it all on the North side and it's amazing to watch new business life springing up and can't wait to see what happens next!

Re: “North Side vs. Everybody

How appropriate on my birthday May 29th. Born and raised in Manchester on the Northside. I tell stories of West View Park as Kennywood lovers cannot believe West View park was our major coaster park and kennywood rival, let alone that another amusement park even existed in its size.

Re: “North Side vs. Everybody

As a North Sider born and raised, I remember us proudly saying, "There are only 2 sides: the North Side and the Outside."

East End? You can't get there from here!

Re: “Lynn Cullen Live - 5/14/19

Hi Lynn. Hope you had a nice vacation. Speaking of Jimmy Carter, my Dad told me this story back when Carter was President. My Dad is into fly fishing, and back then he took a fly fishing lesson from a professional. That professional told him the story of when he took President Carter on a fishing trip. President Carter ended up getting a hook stuck in his hand. The Secret Service and the Doctor that is always on hand couldn't get the hook out. Well, the professional fly fisherman knew the proper way to remove a hook from a persons flesh. The Presidential Doctor and Secret Service were very reluctant to let him remove the hook, but Carter insisted, and the pro showed them all how to remove a hook, live on the President!

Re: “Thanks to my therapist I can now add abandonment issues to my psychiatric cornucopia

I don't really understand what you wanted her to do. Copays are set by insurance companies and so her accepting a lower copay constitutes fraud. Also her not filling your slot would have meant she would have been at work for an hour unpaid until you made the decision to come back. It's not like she said "I'll never see you again." She said "I can't keep your standing appointment open." Therapists are people who have to eat just like everyone else. I think that's really easy to lose sight of.

Re: “Thanks to my therapist I can now add abandonment issues to my psychiatric cornucopia

omg HA THANK YOU I have almost exactly the same list of dx AND recently was transitioned from two therapists in the span of 8 months and it was exactly as awkward as this. I am indebted to your humor for connecting your story with my story in this truthful way.

Re: “At the top of the Carson Towers on East Carson Street, there is an old inlaid sign that says "Saint Joseph's Hospital." I've never heard of St. Joseph's. When did it operate?

i had 2 hospitalizations in St Josephs -1 for a week in November 1961 when I was 7 years old and a longer time in January 1962. Childrens hospital wouldn't take be because we had no insurance. I got great care there- i decided then to be a nurse and in 1976 i graduated from nursing school. I have worked FT as an RN since then and will retire in December
