My bad, normally when a thread has already been done, the website let's you know. I am more curious as to how are these two cites adapting from the decay of their origin industries

Pittsburgh has obviously fared better of late but in my opinion St Louis is in a favorable position given it's geographic location and well-preserved history to revitalize plus attract newcomers with it's lower cost of living. As the US slides further into economic inequality I think many living in areas where salaries are stagnant and housing costs are going higher will be looking to find cities that still offer an urban experience in terms of history, culture, sports and a personality with affordable costs versus stale lifeless suburbs. St Louis and other Midwest cities are going to start looking better and better to many before too long..

Per the TOS, you need to do a search before starting a thread to see if that topic has already been done. There are already no fewer than three other threads comparing Saint Louis and Pittsburgh, including one that's seen new posts just two days ago.

This thread is now closed.


Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis - which is best poised for a comeback?
