in front of his yellow brick 2 story home ,unfortunately the people who bought the home after he passed away took out the pine trees
You would walk up the small stoop to his steps which went up to his porch and thats when he would pop out dressed as the gorilla and it was always fun watching the kids go screaming down the street past our place. Now if you where brave enough to stick around he would give you a really nice bag of candy. He did this up till late 60s when he got too old to do it and also stopped being Santa Claus as well because instead of neighborhood kids appreciating him they vandalized his property.

Sadly same thing happened in Westwood section o city on warriors lane where my grandparents neighbor bob and carol would dress up as Mr and Mrs Santa Claus and visit kids all over .
But one night a group of thugs destroyed his beautiful yard display and that was that Bob was never the same
Yes Pittsburgh's neighborhoods are full of fun loving individuals who only get hurt in the ed and thats a shame but it will always be that way because you can never be or do anything to distinguish your self without some one trying to tear it down or take it from you.
