Andy Warhol grew up here in Pittsburgh. He grew up in the same neighborhood that I live in. I live in Oakland. He lived in Oakland. Oakland is the home of the University of Pittsburgh.
Earlier this summer, I finally searched out and found exactly where he lived at on Dawson Street.
I stood in front of the house and stared at it. There was nothing to suggest that Andy had ever lived there. I was expecting a plaque or something.
But that’s okay. If you wonder why the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is the way it is, in large part it’s because of Andy Warhol.

The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of serious writing and brazen sexuality.
