Department of City Planning

Welcome to TALKPGH! The City of Pittsburgh’s 1st mobile talk show!

TALKPGH, an initiative of the City of Pittsburgh's Department of City Planning, is designed to engage neighbors in shaping the future of the city, informing the City’s comprehensive plan and its art and design sections. 

During a three week period, a transparent truck served as a mobile talk show set, visiting each of the city's 90 neighborhoods, interviewing 267 residents about their opinions, histories, and aspirations for their neighborhoods. 

Viewing is easy! On the map below, just zoom in to find a neighborhood name, click on it, and you will see a Youtube playlist of all the video interviews in your neighborhood. Then just click, watch, share, and comment as you wish.
