I recently relocated to Pittsburgh - 3/13/2015
I was born and raised on Long Island, NY. Lived as an adult in NYC, and spent the last 20 years in south FL. I moved to Pittsburgh 1.5 years ago for an executive position in healthcare, when my husband retired. Things I love: the friendliest people I have ever met, ever, anywhere. Really inexpensive housing, my 85 year old Tudor, walking distance from restaurants, movies and shops, would have cost twice as much in FL and 3 times as
much in NY. Lots to do; great boating in summer, biking, hiking, museums, art, restaurants, theater, lectures, concerts, sports,32
colleges, it goes on and on. Lots of educated people, jobs in healthcare, tech and education, and active Buddhist community
( important to us). Amazing restaurants, green markets, yoga downtown area. On the down side is winter. Spring, summer and fall are perfect in my book, but, winter is gray and snowy, January and February are a good time to get away- the airport is 20 minutes away. Taxes in my community Read More

Reply to concerns about Pittsburgh climate, cultur - 3/12/2015
Maybe I can shed some light for those considering a move to Pittsburgh. First, I have lived in Pittsburgh for eight and a half years, moving here from Southern California. ROUGH adjustment! The culture, food, weather, everything. Having said that, I have seen Pittsburgh really grow in the eight years I have been here, including the 'burbs. You have world class museums, and of course, three major league sports teams; Steelers, Penguins and Pirates. The black and gold thing is a bit much for me, but at times it is endearing. Pittsburgh is really a small city with a lot of big city amenities. Having moved here from California, the cost of living was a great bonus. Great cost of living. Cautionary note; we bought our first home here (never being able to afford CA prices) but were set back by the property taxes in Allegheny County. While I pay just under 4,000 a year in property taxes, I have family back home in California whose houses are worth 3-4 x what mine is worth and pay Read More

It's all about the Sports - 9/9/2014
Pittsburgh is a wonderful place to raise a family - low cost of living, low crime(at least in the suburbs) but if you plan to live here, it's requirement to be sports-obsessed. This town live and dies by its sports teams - especially the Steelers. If you love sports, this is the place to Read More

response to Tom - 5/12/2014
Couldn't agree more! I've been to 45 states and this city is the worst. Roads, weather but the people are friendly. They are everywhere, sometimes it's my attitude that's off. Look at the population increase-decrease in Dallas TX vs Pittsburgh PA. Give ya something to do as there is very little here. The roads in Texas are like glass compared to here. No state income tax either(or city). Our local government needs to travel and see what real progress is. Leave downtown or the North Shore and you have ugly, dirty and potholes. Pave the streets but you still have an 85 year old Read More

Pittsburgh, a wonderful place to live! - 9/28/2013
Before my girlfriend and I moved here to Pittsburgh in June of 2009, we researched many places in the United States to live. We were looking for a place with available work, and a low cost of living. At the time that we moved from Western Massachusetts, the total number of jobs listed on Monster.com within a five mile radius of Amherst, MA was a grand total of eight in all categories. At the same time, there were thousands of jobs listed here in Pittsburgh. Back in Amherst, a small wood frame house could cost more than $250,000. Within a few months of moving to Pittsburgh, we purchased a brick row house here for only $40,000.

Another reason that we moved to Pittsburgh is the city’s universities and medical facilities. We learned that Pitt is one of the top ranked schools for Occupational Therapy in the country and my girlfriend has now begun taking courses there for her Masters in OT. She was also looking for a place where she could teach, and she is now in her Read More
