Pittsburgh gains another top accolade

Pittsburgh has racked up yet another accolade, with the designation as the “most livable city” in the continental U.S., according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2014 livability survey.

Only Honolulu outperformed Pittsburgh among U.S. cities in the study, which measured “which locations around the world provide the best or the worst living conditions.” Pittsburgh was tops in the country in the 2009 iteration of the study...

National Geographic isn't making shows about <insert rust belt city> being the meth capital of America nor are they tracking meth buyers/sellers/distributors.

The Wire and Homicide are giving Baltimore a worst rap than Detroit.

This is pretty hard to believe. After all, I've seen Pittsburgh.

"While not having the most Orthodox Christians in the world, Pittsburgh has, of late, earned the dubious honor of having the most irrate Orthodox Christians living within 50 square miles of each other. Their animosity towards one another, which was previously kept in check by the internet, has led to numerous schisms. There now exist at least three major Orthodox communions within the Pitssburgh area, including: Temple Mar Ephrem; Church of James R., Scientist; and Society of St. Justin Kissel Genuine True Bonafide Really Really Really Orthodox Church."

Pittsburgh is the capital of Rusyns in the diaspora...which explains much of the constant arguing and church shifting.... Grin

Cool!!!   Smiley  I love Pittsburgh, but I have an emotional attachment to the city 'cause I spent part of my growing up years there and my mom and her side of the family are from there, so we'd visit a lot even after we moved away and were living in NY.  My brother and his family are still there.  If I were to ever move back North (right now I'm in NC) it would be back to Pittsburgh.  One of the things I miss, actually, is driving up, down, and around all of the hills in the area and, in autumn it is especially pretty there.

Pittsburgh has great colleges/universities, a leader in healthcare, great arts and culture scene and is home to the BEST NFL team in the nation!!

You do realise that as soon as Mor's church is built, your patron saint will depart for there. Right?
