1. Pittsburgh ranks as one of the most livable cities in the US.
It’s true, Pittsburgh used to be covered in smog and soot from the steel factories. Half a century later, in 2014, the Economist ranked Pittsburgh as one of the most livable cities in the US, second only to Honolulu.
2. It grows “greener” every day.
Yes, it snows a heck of a lot in Pittsburgh, but that doesn’t stop the construction of some of the most energy-efficient buildings in the nation. With LEED-certified buildings like the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, and 60 more similar projects on the way, Pittsburgh is making a name for itself in the environmental arena.
