Pittsburgh Ranked #1
 
Pittsburgh is back at No. 1 among Places Rated
Wednesday, April 25, 2007

By Dan Majors, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

We're back, baby.

The 25th anniversary edition of "Places Rated Almanac" is going to press with its latest ranking of America's most livable cities, and Pittsburgh has returned to the top.

The ranking, revealed tonight by publisher David Savageau, puts Pittsburgh back in the catbird seat it occupied in the almanac's buzz-worthy 1985 edition, a designation that created a nationwide gasp of discussion -- and publicity -- that the city embraced with pride.

The ranking of 379 metropolitan areas in America are based on nine categories: housing (cost of living); transportation; jobs; education; climate; crime; health care; recreation; and ambience (museums, arts, restaurants and historical districts).

The rest of the top 10 are San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Philadelphia, Rochester, N.Y., Washington, D.C., San Jose-Sunnydale, Calif., Boston and Madison, Wis.

Greensboro, N.C., finished last.

Since the publication of the 1985 almanac, Pittsburgh has dropped as low as 14th in 1997 and 12th in 1999, the last year that the listings were done, but the city is the only one to finish in the top 20 every time.

Right back up at the top where da Burgh belongs! Beautiful city with great people and competitive and classy sports franchises (well - maybe not the Pirates at the moment, but I still love 'em anyway!) - what more could you ask for? :thumbsup:

Kudos Pittsburgh! :cheers:

Nice, I plan to live there someday if I can get a good job up there after I get out of college.

Awesome! This just proves that Pittsburgh really is a first-class city, and hopefully the rest of the nation recognizes that fact.

But how in the hell did Rochester, NY make the top 10? I thought that place was a hollowed-out dump?

Philly itself isn't too bad. It when you go in the area between Philly and New York that you run into real problems.

From what I've seen on many occasions, I wouldn't exactly compare it to Newark or Mogadishu, but I do not agree with it being in the top ten (North Philly in particular).
