Renting a Cheap Apartment in Pittsburgh

Leaving its historic past as a steel manufacturing city behind, Pittsburgh has a bright future with a newly diversified economy and national reputation as a place to find strong employment and reasonably-priced housing. With major companies in the technology, health care, robotics, education and finance arenas, Pittsburgh has much to offer. Pittsburgh’s natives are known for their love of the Steelers, and you’re sure to hear lots of black-and-yellow references (the team colors and a popular song by Wiz Khalifa) everywhere you go. The city is at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers, which merge to form the Ohio just beyond the city’s business district. There are 446 bridges in this river-centric city.
