A View From the Top in Pittsburgh

By Linda Tancs

Voted one of the top 10 sites in the world for viewing a cityscape, the Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is one of the few remaining inclines in the country. Opened to the public in 1877, it closely follows the tracks of an early coal hoist. The upper station houses a museum of Pittsburgh history, including information on inclines from around the world. Enjoy a spectacular panorama of Pittsburgh and its three rivers!
