Pittsburgh hosting urban revitalization conference

It's easy to make fun of the fact that Pittsburgh is hosting the annual conference of the Pennsylvania Downtown Center, an organization focused on promoting "Pennsylvania's downtown's and traditional neighborhood business districts."

(Aside: the PDC site designer could borrow a page from Eats, Shoots & Leaves, and lose that apostrophe.)

Too easy, in fact. The city's finances may be in the tank, and people still complain that downtown Pittsburgh doesn't hum like New York. (Note to all: it never will.) But there is a lot more going on in Pittsburgh today than there was when I arrived, six years ago.
