I am not actually from a city, but from a town, but it is near a big city, Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh is a historic American city, built where two rivers, the Monongahela and the Allegheny, join to form the Ohio River. It was once a very industrial city with a lot of steel mills and coal mines. The city is located in the Appalachian mountains, and there are hills all around it.

The climate is cold in the winter and hot in the summer! In the winter there is often snow, sometimes a lot of snow. In the summer there is a lot of sunshine, but the best time of the year is the autumn when the leaves change colors. In the spring there is rain and people start to plant their gardens.

The city is very historical. There is an old university, the University of Pittsburgh, and a very famous school Carnegie Mellon University. There are sites where battles were fought before the Revolutionary War and where George Washington stayed. The city is very ethnic too, with a lot of immigrants and famous African Americans, because of the factories. I highly recommend that you visit Pittsburgh!
