Why is Pittsburgh yellow?
posted by pdb to travel & transportation around Pittsburgh, PA (8 answers total)
I just got back from a couple days in Pittsburgh. While I was wandering around, I noticed that the dominant color in Pittsburgh seems to be yellow - several of the bridges
, Heinz Field
, and a lot of other things sport a lot of yellow paint.
I know that the Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins all have yellow-black-and-white color schemes; is the yellowness of the city a result of the sports teams, or vice versa? If it's not sports-related, where did the yellow originate?
