Daily ranking: "Even beats Honolulu"
Folks are not supposed to beat me to this, but the Economist has again ranked Pittsburgh higher than any other US region for livability. You can read more on our sustained ascendancy from the Huffington Post.
The UK's Daily Mail has the best headline though. They literally say: It's official: Pittsburgh is best place to live in U.S. (it even beats Honolulu)
Reads like they may be suffering from a bit of cognitive dissonance I guess. Someone should send this over to Newsweek where just last month they ranked us among the most dying cities in America. My brain hurts. I guess it would be a good time to go back and rehash some of our history with these livability metrics for what they are worth.
