YCLHY: Your City Leaders Hate You

YCLHY: Give Me Directions


If you’re visiting Pittsburg for the first time, or even if you are a local, don’t expect it to be easy to find what you’re looking for. Your City Leaders have a way of making something that is so simple for other cities to do, almost impossible.

Drive or walk around town for awhile. How do you find what you’re looking for? Pittsburg is practically bereft of any directional signs (except for the beloved eBART…), and the few existing signs are messy, cheap, and embarrassing examples of a city with no sense of self-worth.

However, take a glance at our neighboring cities. They are a breeze to navigate thanks to professional, branded signage.



Why does Pittsburg have almost NO directional signs? And why are the few signs we do have so bad?

The answer’s clear: It’s because your city leaders hate  you. And they hate Pittsburg. And they obviously hate visitors too.
