I'm just curious. You can answer the poll and also post a more spcific answer if you want to.

I fall into the first category myself.

I was born in Erie, so really the same cultural region, but I can't claim any Pittsburgh nativism. I also live elsewhere, but aggressively looking for a way to move to Pittsburgh. You might say I am an outsider who has long admired Pittsburgh from afar.

I'm from Chambersburg (Central Pa). I went to Pitt in the early 90's and fell in love with the city. I moved to the triangle region of North Carolina for grad school and then lived in Columbus, OH for a couple years, but always had the intention of making my way back here. I moved back to Pittsburgh 5 years ago, recently bought a house in Friendship, and now can't imagine living anywhere else.

Born elsewhere but really the extreme edge of the Pittsburgh Sphere... St. Marys, PA in Elk County... about 2 1/2 hours northeast in the middle of the woods... fell in love with Pittsburgh at age 4 and 21 years later realized my dream of living here in January. Hope to do whatever I can to create positive change here.

well I already voted in the first category, so you'll just have to count my vote elsewhere

It doesn't matter much, this is just for my own curiousity :)

I'm from North Jersey originally and my wife is from the Bay Area of California. We both came here to go to Pitt but love it here and don't intend to leave anytime soon. We could never afford to own homes in either of the areas that we came from.
