DC has a grid, but then it interrupts it with circles and diagonals, just enough to confuse you. Also it resets the count, so there are two A Streets and two 1st Streets, etc.

Pittsburgh is too hilly and irregularly shaped for a grid to last very long anywhere, but it does have various sections that are grids. They also tried to do some numbered streets, so you can infer the direction of a numbered street or avenue if you find one of the other ones. But they're not present everywhere and most streets have regular names.
