Rialto Street, a.k.a “Pig Hill”

One of Pittsburgh’s famously steep hills, measuring in at a 24% grade and  20 feet wide, Rialto Street is also called “Pig Hill” by locals as it was used to drive pigs up from the rail stations on Herr’s Island (renamed Washington’s Landing) to Spring Garden, which was Pittsburgh’s early meat packing neighborhood.
