Living in Pittsburgh

The city of Pittsburgh is vivacious and boasts to be one of America's Most Livable Cities. It’s the second largest city in Pennsylvania, and is located at the confluence of three rivers: the Monongahela, the Allegheny, and the Ohio.   While offering all the opportunities of a large metropolitan area, Pittsburgh has small-town friendliness and a lower cost of living than other major cities like Boston, Chicago, San Francisco and New York.
