thumbnail for DUQUESNE INCLINE AT UPPER STATIONThere are two inclines on Grandview Ave. The Monongahela up the street is primarily used as public transport. This one, the Duquesne Incline, can be used for the same purpose, but is more of a tourist attraction. Inside is a "museum" with history of the area and the incline itself along with a souvenir shop. There's a great view of the city from the viewing platform.
