Featured City



Pittsburgh might be called the city of surprises. Contrary to a long-lived reputation for smoke and steel, this post-modern metropolis has become a world-class example of a city excelling in the art of self-transformation.

Even after the decline of steel in the 1980s, manufacturing remains a powerful and now more stable part of Pittsburgh's future. Across its diversified economy jobs flow from a larger stream of businesses, institutions, and startup enterprises in health care, education, information technologies, robotics, fashion, and finance--as well as an array of professional services in engineering, accounting and law.

To these dynamic sectors, Pittsburgh adds the assets of a well-maintained infrastructure, a world-renowned catalog of educational and research institutions, and a calendar of diversions kept full throughout the year. Placed in a landscape that captures the eye with its natural and created vistas, Pittsburgh has used the lessons of change to learn how to look ahead.

Read more about it each week in our sister publication, Pop City, devoted to Pittsburgh's transformation.
