When looking at Pittsburgh skyline pictures, it's easy to see how the city got its nicknames of "The Steel City" and "The City of Bridges" for holding the world record of 446 bridges. Positioned at the convergence of the Ohio, Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, the growth of the skyline of Pittsburgh is because of its ease of access to the Atlantic Ocean, interior United States, and its close proximity to mineral-rich building resources.
Some of the most famous landmarks of Pittsburgh skyline pictures are its sporting arenas and stadiums, particularly Heinz Field, which is home to the Pittsburgh Steelers NFL football team; nearby PNC Park is the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team. In the Uptown district of Pittsburgh pictures is the Consol Energy Center, which is where the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL) and Pittsburgh Power (AFL) play home games.
While the industrial heritage that fueled the growth of Pittsburgh city skyline declined after the 1970s, the city has continued to thrive following its transition to a service economy fueled by high technology and research. Many Fortune 500 companies and law firms are headquartered in skyscrapers depicted in Pittsburgh panoramic pictures, including RAND, BNY Mellon, Nova Chemicals, FedEx, GSK and Bayer. The city even proudly houses ten of the world's first "green" buildings.
Commonly rated as the "most livable city in America" by multiple publications, pictures of the Pittsburgh city skyline proudly display a top international destination and the world hubs of many high-tech industries, such as robotics, cyber defense and R&D expenditures. Over 1,600 tech firms, 7 colleges and 31 non-profit universities call the many corporate offices and campuses in Pittsburgh photos home.
