Hi Editors,

Wonderful first edition. Well done. Pushing out a baby is a lot of hard work. With a baby, my biggest tips are to always remember that its wants and needs are one in the same. :)

Dear New Yinzer,

As a former PGH resident, it was nice to hear mention of "the Boulevard of the Allies" and "Darragh St." and, of course, Schenley Park. It took me back to a simpler time of Miami Subs, Metropol, the Point, the Warhol Museum, etc. I miss the 'Burgh and its wonderful topography (the city of Boston is flat). I miss the walk down from Sutherland Hall, all of Oakland stretching out before me. I miss splitting an Antoon's $4 large pie w/ Nick at midnight. I miss the Mon. Thanks for a bit of nostalgia.

Congratulations and good luck on the premiere issue of The New Yinzer. I'd like to link to your e-zine from my Pittsburgh music web-site, AcoustiCafe.org. Do you have a link button available? (you really should...) Thanks for your contribution towards the cultural rebirth of Pittsburgh!

Hey gang...

I'm plugging the website on my show and linking it to my page on our website. I'd like to prevent your site from toiling in obscurity. This town needs more good stuff like this.

For whatever it's worth, growing up in Pittsburgh one always called them 'city steps'.
