    It’s tough to say what a “green city” actually looks like, there isn’t a universal archetype, however I have seen a lot of articles in the past year or so that praise Chicago’s recent efforts at greening they’re city.  Chicago is greening in the most literal way possible by making a concerted effort to make as much urban green space as possible through urban gardens, rooftop gardens, and general use urban green space.  Considering Chicago’s heavily industrial past, this transformation is a complete 180 degree turn for the city.

    It’s hard to predict which city will be the next greenest city in the US because the expectations are always changing and cities are always doing things differently but a few that have topped the Top 10 in recent years, and will likely continue to do things ‘greenly’ in the future are:

    San Francisco, NYC, Seattle, Denver, Eugene (OR), Austin (TX), and Portland (OR) to name a few.

    Pittsburgh is a re-invented green city.  It was once the dirtiest city in the country, and its air and water still suffer today from pollution from the Industrial Revolution.  But it is a leader in green buildings, is one of the few citiies in the US with a food forest, and is part of lots of green initiatives.  Pittsburgh has had a much tougher road to becoming green than many other cities.

    Pittsburgh’s green rating fluctuates a bit but is usuall in the top 10 greenest cities.
