The Livability survey's reply — in a landslide — turned into: affordability.

It's a huge flow up for Pittsburgh, which became No. 34 ultimate year. In August of remaining year, our city with a Golden Triangle changed into named the 2d most livable metropolis in america, in response to The world Liveability Index, an annual report with the aid of The Economist Intelligence Unit.

The site examined more than 1,000 cities "in response to hundreds of information aspects measuring economics, housing, facilities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, training and health care" to calculate what it calls the "LivScore" for each and every metropolis.

"Pittsburgh has a certain beauty and grittiness that, for my part, doesn't exist somewhere else," the website quoted Katie Gilronan, public relations and media supervisor at FlexJobs (a job-finding site primarily based in Boulder, Colo.). "The metropolis is attainable, the people are friendly, the restaurant scene is 2d to none, and there's at all times whatever fun to do! Plus, our skyline is quite simply breathtaking. And for these like myself who work from home, the city has a variety of super espresso shops and co-working areas to take advantage of."

The site also gave us first rate grades for normal intelligence.

"Pittsburgh may well be well-known as the metal metropolis" — I wager we haven't moved beyond the "metal" first branding — "for its 300-plus metal-linked groups and its six-time championship profitable NFL crew, the Pittsburgh Steelers, yet when it involves arts, training and tradition amenities, the metropolis is far from the tension such a name might also suggest. With more than 60 faculties and universities, together with analysis and development leaders Carnegie-Mellon and the tuition of Pittsburgh, the city also earns praise for its smart population."
