SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) — A real estate website announced Wednesday it quantified a list of America’s Smartest Cities and placed Pittsburgh at its top.
A blog post on Movoto.com, which is based in San Francisco and bills itself as “the lighter side of real estate,” said after examining criteria that included universities and college per person, libraries per person, education level of residents, media per person (defined as newspapers, radio, television and magazines), museums per person and a rank of its public schools, and applying them to the 100 most populous cities in the United States, it identified Pittsburgh the country’s smartest.
The rest of Movoto’s top 10 list, in order, includes Orlando, Fla., Washington, Atlanta, Honolulu, Seattle, San Francisco, Cincinnati and Miami.
