Pittsburgh, New York LaGuardia, or Washington D.C.- Reagan.

I'd pick Reagan-DCA too. The view approaching the airport is breathaking, as PanAm 747 notes. DCA is also less likely to be congested than LGA, so there's less chance of getting delayed.
New York is incredible from the air too, but at DCA you literally fly through the middle of the city.
On the inbound flight to DCA, get a left-side window seat, which will give you the Monuments view if you approach from the north. On the outbound flight from DCA, get a right-side window seat, so if you take off northbound you'll get the Monuments view.

DCA might be cheaper since yoi'll probably be on the Shuttle flight to DCA. Since I live near DCA, I would pick DCA.
The best seat is on the right side if you're landing on 19. you can see my house and the views of Arlington, VA (where I live) of the Pentagon, Arlington Natl. Cemetary and much more. From the right, you'll be able to see Rosslyn and buzz right over the building at nearly breathtaking couple hundred of feet while making the first sharp right turn. Then the 2nd sharp right turn on a 1 mile final is like a roller coaster ride. It's fun.
When ya leaving fom BOS?

If you want to visit a truly magnificent airport connect through PIT. It's convenient, clean, not very crowded, lots of things to do on a layover not to mention lots of good aircraft to see. If you arrive after 4:00pm and before 7 you'll probably see the few widebodies that do the transatlantic runs.
