It is notoriously inexpensive, actually. It’s like this little forgotten part of the country that no one moves to unless they have to or were born here. But don’t let that fool you, it’s awesome.

The dynamic IS changing, btw. Our medical and educational industries are starting to become attractive draws for some folks, and the overall stability of the region is drawing more interest. Still, it never seems to grow at the pace of other cities and one thing about us is the region isn’t built up as much as say a New York or LA so it can grow without feeling like it has grown or costing more because resources or real estate is more scarce.

I mean, I guess. I don't know why you'd build a system that goes into Butler, Westmoreland, and Beaver county, but doesn't even follow the EXISTING tracks into Allegheny County's Springdale and Tarentum.
