Forbes.com has ranked Pittsburgh seventh nationally on a list of best places to raise a family, Mayor Luke Ravenstahl said this morning.
The website cited the city's safety, affordability and educational opportunities, the mayor said.
"With every positive ranking, it's important that we not only tell our good story and seek to attract more families to Pittsburgh, but roll up our sleeves and work on getting even safer, creating more opportunities for our youths and families and being more livable. Next year, let's shoot for an even higher ranking," Mr. Ravenstahl said in a statement.
The honor comes about a month after Forbes.com ranked Pittsburgh the nation's "Most Livable City."
