Forbes Magazine has named Pittsburgh its "Most Livable City" in its annual report that looks at unemployment, crime, income growth, arts and leisure, and cost of living.
"Pittsburgh's art scene, job prospects, safety and affordability make it the most livable city in the country, according to measures studied," the article states. "The city has rebounded from its manufacturing past. Disused steel mills have been repurposed into multimedia art centers, and amid a struggling national economy, Google Pittsburgh, a test site for the company's new high-speed broadband network, has expanded its offices to accommodate more hires. Pittsburgh's strong university presence--the city has over a dozen colleges or campuses--helps bolster its livability." -pittsburgh city paper
