Pittsburgh named best downtown in America
Livability.com recently published its 2015 Top 10 Best Downtowns, naming Pittsburgh as number one. The site attributes the top ranking to the “uniquely positioned downtown” that lies between the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers, the variety of entertainment options, as well as “low vacancy rates, a high number of new homeowners, walkable neighborhoods and a high concentration of cultural amenities”.
Pittsburgh is also listed at 80th in the site’s 2014 Top 100 Best Places to Live.
Evidenced by these recent recognitions, Pittsburgh is certainly on its way out of the shadows and into the American economy’s limelight.
