Once again, Pittsburgh has been named the country's Most Livable City, this time by Forbes.com.
The business publication ranked the city as No. 1 based on its art and leisure scene, job prospects, safety and affordability.
Reiterating the observation that has won the city high livability marks from other ratings mavens, reporter Francesca Levy wrote: "The city has rebounded from its manufacturing past. Disused steel mills have been repurposed into multimedia art centers."
The article cited the city's strong university presence another factor.
Mayor Luke Ravenstahl pounced on the news, sending out a statement that "Our city has come a long way and I'm thrilled that Forbes.com has once again recognized Pittsburgh's unique position as a City that truly has it all --entertainment and affordability, but most importantly, safety and jobs."
