40. Oh please
So you know absolutely NOTHING about this city, but want to fling stuff about it on the interwebs.

If you knew anything, or did a smidge of research or had the balls to do it now and admit you were wrong, you'd see that Pittsburgh is weathering the recession better than most other cities. We've even had minor job growth during some months where other areas were getting smashed.

Yes the Pittsburgh economy took a hit 30 years ago with Steel collapsing, but it pulled itself back up an specialized small manufacturing, biotech, robotics, and green technology and medical research are huge here now, and most of those are fairly recession proof, and you see it in the city. Our unemployment is one of the lowest in the nation 1/3rd less than the national average.

Our home prices never got hit by the bubble, so they never had to crash, and hence the home prices around here have gone up steadily even this past year.

I can't take pictures of that stuff here because I don't see it in the city here. Oh i'm sure I can find a for sale or for lease sign, but not in any more abundance than normal.

I'm sorry that you can't admit you were wrong, and that you're ignorant enough to spout off on something you even admit you have zero knowledge of.

Give me a break dude.
