Pittsburgh is not cool

But you knew that, right? So this report, which faults Pittsburgh (again) as a lousy city for singles largely -- but not entirely -- because it is number 39 out of 40 cities for "coolness" (pause here for more shout-outs to Richard Florida from all of his fans in the 'Burgh), is just silly. Ignore it. It means nothing. New York is only the seventh coolest city in the country, according to Forbes!

Pittsburgh isn't cool. Doesn't want to be cool. Was never cool. Will never be cool. Doesn't matter how you count it. And that's just fine.
