We can learn from the leaders of "the city of steel" as they quietly went about re-inventing that city over the past 20 years. From a struggling blue-collar economy, tied primarily to production of steel, to a flourishing metropolitan area that attracts the brightest MBA candidates to Mellon and whose cultural scene is bustling.
Stop rolling your eyes. If you haven't been to Pittsburgh, PA in recent years, you don't know this city. And now it tops Forbes' list of "most livable cities in US."
Congratulations to the citizens of this fine city. Now can someone please ask Ben Roethlisberger to pack his bags so as not to drag this list down?
