Pittsburgh
Steamiest Places

This section includes local places likely to be of greatest interest to steampunks. You can think of it as a "Best of" section that features selected locations from the other sections. The term "steamiest" should be taken figuratively. You won't necessarily find steam-powered contraptions in all these places. Instead, these locations are rich in the elements that define steampunk: Victorian- or Edwardian-era technology, culture, history, personalities, oddities and so on.
