Pittsburgh, celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2008, has been ranked by Frommer's as one of the top thirteen "places around the world that are worthy of a traveler's attention."
That's awesome, even tho I don't care for there football team. 250 years HUH. That's alot of years.
Compared to cities in Europe, Pittsburgh is young.
In another 250 years, Pittsburgh will be telling kids to get off its lawn.

America is young, period. 250 years in terms of a continent's history might as well be the age of a human toddler.
Still, though, congratulations to the great city of Pittsburgh and its accomplishments.
Anthrocon 2006 was in the same year that the Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl. ^^
Only 250? Boston's 378 next year.
Congrats to Pittsburgh! They've had a rough time for many years, and through all that they've managed to keep some really awesome gems of places to visit. I'm cheering them on! (And what does it really matter if they're not the oldest city? :/ )
well UncleKage, you might see another large spike in attendance this year. you may want to double check the charts and graphs to add that into the equation for the number of attendees guess.
Pittsburgh should add Anthrocon to its special events list
That would be nice! The only thing is that we are not a public event. We are "members only" (although anyone can get a membership).
