I really disagree with that. I am born and raised in Pittsburgh and my father is a city police officer in Pittsburgh and so was my grandfather who has since passed. It's a big city so it's expected to have a higher crime rate then some small rural town. It's a great place to live, work and have fun. So much is offered it would take me too long to name it all. Stereotyping the city as having "all that crime and pollution" is ridiculous. Maybe a long time ago there was a lot of pollution but for a major city I assure you it's a great place to live. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. In traveling I have been to many different cities small and large and I could not be happier being from Pittsburgh.

It really pisses me off the negative comments about Pittsburgh. It's just like every other city, there's some rude people and there are average people. Grimy steel mills?? Sorry were not good enough for you...

This map was posted by member "Air" recently, and the dark red shadings show the worst levels of smog. PA sits smack dab in the midlde of the blobs around the Ohio River Valley (coal plants), and the BosWash Corridor (congestion). Scranton/Wilkes-Barre's air quality sucks big time in the summer with 15 code red days last year, so I'd imagine Pittsburgh's must be even worse.

This map is fascinating.

But I am slightly annoyed that a lot of Russia, all of Scandanavia, the upper half of Canada, and the east of Australia are missing. Where did they go?
