Yes. Pittsburgh is doing many things to become a greener city. Once deemed the “smoky city” due to its extreme air pollution levels, Pittsburgh has taken many measures to improve its air quality through heavy restrictions on air pollution. Pittsburgh has also started a “brownfields” movement where many old abandoned steel mills are being reused for businesses ranging from laboratories to shopping centers. The largest green building in the world, the Lawrence Convention Center, is also housed in Pittsburgh. As for transportation, a water-taxi industry is emerging in Pittsburgh where commuters can travel by boat to their destinations, and there are over 30 miles of bike trails throughout Pittsburgh as well.
