That's a shame. I lived in Alliance for 3 years in the early 60s and my memories are that Ohio was pretty nice. Rolling countryside. Nice neighborhoods. Snow? Yikes!!

Went to Cleveland several times on business in the late 90s. Seemed like a nice town. The view from the city over the lake was great. And I once had a hotel room looking down on the Jake. Awfully impressive.

Funny that St. Louis was picked solely because of its' football teams failure. :sofunny: Shouldn't more criteria be put into determining the cities?

Also funny that a Chicago publication would include their very own city in the list.

For some reason that cracks me up.

I also live in Ohio, and personally, I'm not surprised the list is packed with Ohio cities. I hate this state.

Why?

Well, seeing as that you're from massillon, you see a lot of the same things I do. I'm from just south of Massillon and was actually born in Massillon and lived there until I was two. This part of the state in particular is riddled with uneducated media, politicans and voters, rednecks with drinking problems, a poor economy and... the list goes on. You may not agree, but you asked why I hate it so much.

I'm sure a lot of other places have the same issues, but having lived here for so long, it's very apparent to me.

(Please, no political or social debates. I was just voicing my opinion.)

Canton is on the list which is hilarious, that it made it over come of the bigger cities. I don't see the problem with Canton, I don't feel miserable. I mean, there is sections of this city that are in the slums. But every city has that.

We're No. 1 Again! Pittsburgh Ranked Most Livable City
Economist Names Pittsburgh Most Livable City In US




PITTSBURGH --
Pittsburgh is No. 1 again, this time in The Economist magazine's ranking of the most livable city in the United States.

The British magazine's ranking comes weeks after President Barack Obama chose Pittsburgh to host the G-20 summit in September, calling it a symbol of economic recovery.

The Economist is the fourth publication in all, and first international periodical, to name the city among the country’s most livable, Channel 4 Action News’ Ari Hait reported.

Globally, the Economist survey ranked Pittsburgh 29th most livable. Vancouver, Canada tops that list.

The CEO of VisitPittsburgh, Joe McGrath, told Hait that the benefits the city will see from this title are immeasurable.

“It really does not surprise us,” McGrath said. “The attitude there has changed for the last decade and it’s been going north.”

The magazine considers stability, health care, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

Pittsburghers told Hait there is much more than just that.

“It’s the people,” Georgiana Thomas of Mt. Lebanon said. "It's definitely the people.”

“Everybody’s nice. Everybody gets along with everybody,” Franz Garcia of Mt. Lebanon said.

The Economist also cited Pittsburgh’s cultural amenities as reason for the top rank. It said the city's downtown theaters and diverse collection of museums all weighed heavily on the decision.

Other factors listed by The Economist included Pittsburgh's top-rated medical centers and highly ranked universities.

Pittsburgh's economy was decimated when the U.S. steel industry collapsed 30 years ago. It has been struggling to recover ever since.

I think there was never a dought who in the hell would want to live in Cleveland when we have a city as nice as Pittsburgh.:applaudit:
