The City of Pittsburgh is making world headlines for its rebirth as a model city. Pittsburgh's steel mills are shuttered, and what's replaced them is a growing, diversified economy of health care, financial services, banking, energy, computer science, and manufacturing firms. Publications including ForbesThe EconomistPlaces Rated Almanac, and National Geographic have all recently selected Pittsburgh as the top place in the United States to live or visit. Three primary reasons are Pittsburgh's low housing costs, low crime rate, and the rugged beauty of Pittsburgh's topography. In short, Pittsburgh offers all the amenities people want of a large city, yet offers its own unique small-town charm.
