Pittsburgh is a port city in southwest Pennsylvania, at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, which form the Ohio River. The city was settled around Fort Pitt in 1758 and developed rapidly with the discovery of iron deposits and one of the world’s richest coalfields. The city features 151 high-rise buildings, 446 bridges, two inclined railways, and a pre-revolutionary fortification. Pittsburgh is known as "the City of Bridges" and "the Steel City" for its many bridges and former steel manufacturing base.
It has also been referred to as “a city of immigrants” and is known for its cultural diversity within its various neighborhoods. People of Italian, Irish, Polish, Chinese, and Indian-heritage backgrounds (among countless others) comprise a significant proportion of the city’s 330,000+ population. The city is also racially-diverse, with 27% of people identifying as African-American and another 3% identifying as Asian.
Major publications often note Pittsburgh’s high livability compared to other American cities, with the city claiming the top overall spot in the United States in recent "most livable city" lists by Places Rated Almanac (2007), Forbes (2010), and The Economist (2011).
