Have some compassion for the families, will you? And until you know the facts, you shouldn't make assumptions.

I recently traveled that road at 3:00 AM in order to catch a 6:00 AM flight. And no, I wasn't in the area to pack my suitcase with drugs, you jackass.

No you didn't. You would not use 5th Ave to go to the Airport, and you would not go 3 hours before your flight leaves. That time of day, it is about a 40 minute drive from the Port to Pgh Airport, and about 30 minutes to process you into the boarding area at most. Unless you live in one of those hood apartments along 5th... and in that case... you would not have the money to fly anywhere. You are not a good Liar. No Compassion.. Dead to rights... you of all people should be applauding the cleaning up of the Port. If you are out on 5th Ave at 2:30am.. you are up to no good.

Many people take Ardmore to the Parkway, and yes, it takes around 40 minutes unless you're traveling during a snowfall.
And yes, even for 6:00AM flights, the TSA and airport advises arriving 2 hours early.

You are funny. Noone referrs to it as "Ardmore" it is Rt. 30. or Lincoln Highway. If you live in the Port... you would go through Homestead/waterfront and get on the ParkWay on the otherside of the tunnels to avoid the traffic that begins building around 6 am usually. If you would not go that way, you are either; 1. an idiot, or 2. you do not live in the Port. Actually, you would take the 61 c into town then try and hitch to the Airport, because you most likely would not own a car if you live down there.

No.. Rt. 30 is Rt 30 from the Atlantic to the Pacific... it is called the Lincoln Highway because President Lincoln had it built as the nations first trans-continental Highway.... there is your History lesson for the day. It is called "Ardmore Blvd" from the Westinghouse Bridge to the Parkway, then Ardmore Blvd is Rt. 8 until you get to the intersection in Wilkinsburg, then it is Rt. 8/Penn Ave. 5th Ave is downtown in the port running parallel to Lysle Blvd. Lysle runs the length of the Port from Glassport to the Duq Bridge intersection where it becomes E. 5th Ave. Now there is your Geography lesson. Now your Sociology lesson... if you are tending bar down there... you are dealing drugs too... No one calls it "Ardmore" unless you work for WTAE. EVERYONE else calls it Rt. 30. As far as Facebook... I do not use it. It is stupid. I stumbled on this place not long ago.. and it is more HIlarious every day. You people in the Port are a joke. Never have I seen a place where so many people love to hate it.

It was built by President Lincoln, as stated above, although it took many years to complete. It was completed well after his death... but still named after him. It is one of the mosr famous roads in our fine nation. You can drive from Reno to Philadelphia on the LINCLN HWY/US RT 30. Abraham Lincoln actually took the portion that was completed to his famous Gettysburg Address. If you are not sureof this, drive it.. you can read the many historical plaques along the way. Keep trying.. I am way smarter than any of you. Documentable.

Your buddy Elash was out drunk as a skunk at 1:30AM. Was he buying drugs too?
