I liked high ways and how its safe and clean, in another hand, i would love to see express train connects all us states and see express train stations all around allegedly county.
Allegheny County is a nice place to live. There are a lot of friendly people here. The communities are small and kind to each other. Allegheny County has great place to go and hang out.
