Our Mission at Popular Pittsburgh

We’re writing, taking pictures, and having fun with Pittsburgh information.

We want to share great Pittsburgh recipes, thoughts from exceptional Pittsburghers around the globe, and get your input on everything from your favorite Italian restaurant to the best place to take your date in the ‘Burgh.

Most importantly, we hope to share our pride in this town with everyone else who’s more proud of this Steel City than a Steeler wearing a Super Bowl ring (or two, or six)! Bring your friends whether or not they’ve ever lived here, and we’ll make ‘Burghers of them all.

We love this town!

The visionary behind Popular Pittsburgh is a native son who started out making potholders for friends and neighbors as a kid. He’s no technological marvel, just a small businessman who’s proud of the place he calls home.

Tom Pollard is a hardworking Pittsburgher who has spent a lifetime promoting the Steel City through the sale of Pittsburgh souvenirs and memorabilia, as well as through his commercial photography. Every Pittsburgh shot we have is a Tom Pollard original.

Tom’s entrepreneurial spirit wants to spread the Pittsburgh love to the world.
