"Rebuilding the steel city"

Al jazeera America recently reported on Pittsburgh’s thirty year revitalization since the collapse of the steel industry, referring to the new and improved steel city as center for financial service companies, medical centers and high tech industries. 

The piece points to developments such as the Waterfront along with local and foreign investments as steps in the transformation. The efforts to improve Pittsburgh are compared to the steps taken in Detroit, Mich.

“You can bomb a city, you can burn a city, you can flood a city, or you can tear the economic heart of a city out. As long as you invest back into the people who believe in that city, the city will come back,” Mayor Bill Peduto comments.
