Pittsburgh is an extraordinary American city in so many respects. The striking geography of bridges and rivers. The nationally recognized cultural scene. The pride that comes with cheering for three major league sports teams: the Penguins, Pirates, and Steelers. And the rich tapestry of 90 distinctive neighborhoods—including Pitt’s own, Oakland—that give Pittsburgh its genuineness and warmth.
Pittsburgh is also home to Fortune 500 companies like U.S. Steel, PNC Bank, and Dick’s Sporting Goods; research centers and offices from powerhouses such as Google, Apple, Disney, and Uber; and innovative small businesses and non-profits. Combine this wealth of opportunity with an affordable cost of living and it is no surprise that Pittsburgh is ranked one of the most livable cities in the U.S.
