Birmingham, Alabama is the largest city in Alabama and for a century and a half was an industrial city including iron and steel. Today the prominent industries are education, banking, telecommunications and electrical power. The transition from an industrial town to a progressive university town complete with several schools has made Birmingham a chic and urbane place to live. The city has been in a state of constant urban renewal since the 1970s. Aside from being home to many new downtown lofts and condominiums, it is also home to many new suburbs that are expanding to the foothills of Red Mountain in the South, Ruffner Mountain in the east and the Appalachian foothills in the north-east.
