Things to Do and Community Resources

"Pittsburgh has undergone a striking renaissance from a down-and-out smokestack to a gleaming cultural oasis. But old stereotypes die hard, and Pittsburgh probably doesn't make many people's short list for a cosmopolitan getaway. Too bad, because this city of 89 distinct neighborhoods is a cool and—dare I say, hip—city. There are great restaurants, excellent shopping, breakthrough galleries and prestigious museums. The convergence of three rivers and surrounding green hills also make it a surprisingly pretty urban setting." Click here
