"I looked at Philly . . . but it was too dirty."

The words above belong to Rob de la Cretaz (that's an awfully cool name, BTW), a tech guru from New Jersey, describing why he chose to move to Pittsburgh over Philadelphia (and Boston and San Francisco). He lives in the up and coming neighborhood of Lawrenceville, just to the Northeast of downtown, and has taken to the city like a fish in water. Read his story, written by Elaine LaBalme of Pop City, here, which has some resonance for those looking for the best in the region -- sometimes it takes a new set of eyes for you to see what's right in front of you.
