Understand edit

Pittsburgh and its surrounding area has a distinct regional identity and has historically been regarded as a transitional region within the Northeastern United States. The region's counties also fall within the borders of Appalachia as defined by the Appalachian Regional Commission. The City of Pittsburgh has been characterized as the "northern urban industrial anchor of Appalachia" which makes it an anomaly compared to much of Appalachia which has traditionally been characterized as southern, rural, and economically distressed.
