The American Queen in Pittsburgh


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!


My friend and I were in Downtown Pittsburgh earlier today for a Cardinals/Pirates baseball game. We had a little time to kill, so we sat by the banks of the Allegheny River where the American Queen was getting ready to depart Pittsburgh. It's not a common sight to see such a large ship on the river. I snapped a couple pictures as they were departing the city and thought I would share them with you. They're not the greatest photos, but oh well.


I found it interesting to watch the smoke stacks fold down so the ship can go under bridges. I also found the music they played on the ship's horns as it was leaving.






You can see one of the smoke stacks down and the other still up in this picture.
