About the Community

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is the second-largest city in the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania with a population of 305,842 and the county seat of Allegheny County.

Pittsburgh is known as both "the Steel City" for its more than 300 steel-related businesses, as well as "the City of Bridges" for its 446 bridges. The city features 30 skyscrapers, 2 inclines, a pre-revolutionary fortification and the source of the Ohio River at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers. This vital link of the Atlantic coast and Midwest through the mineral-rich Alleghenies made the area coveted by the French and British Empires, Virginia, Whiskey Rebels, Civil War raiders and media networks.

The population is ethnically diverse. The downtown area is vibrant and active, with nightlife along the river and ample downtown shopping.

Excellent residential neighborhoods and suburban towns extend in all directions. The Moon Township area (west above the river) is the fastest growing and one of the best family areas, while older suburbs like Mt Lebanon and Bethel Park (to the south) and McCandless and Allison Park (north) are all worth a look. These areas have generously spaced, high quality housing for the price.

The area is well known for its sports, education, and cultural amenities. Pittsburgh has major league teams in football (Steelers), hockey (Penguins), and baseball (Pirates). Fan support and interest, particularly for the Steelers football team, is legendary. The new Heinz Field and PNC Park are attractive, accessible sports venues.

The city has excellent public transportation facilities, especially for neighborhoods closer to downtown. It is the major hub for US Airways.
