Pittsburgh, PA seems to have taken its share of hits over the last five or so years. Too bad really. As a city of culture, with terrific old architecture, it had begun to recover and find itself in the post-industrial era, even doing better than many large cities in the northeastern United States.

This piece from the Atlantic tells a tale of tragedy and opportunity intertwining.
