Welcome Pittsburgh Urban Blog (The PUB)

There is a new blog on the Pittsburgh scene, The Pittsburgh Urban Blog (PUB):

The PUB highlights our work on economic and community development, neighborhood conditions, and regional change in Pittsburgh. Exciting findings and research will be featured from our Pittsburgh Neighborhood and Community Information System (PNCIS) and our quarterly publication, the Pittsburgh Economic Quarterly (PEQ).

I'm particularly excited to learn more about the PNCIS. I'm already a regular reader of the PEQ. You might want to add The PUB to your preferred blog aggregator.
