"Modern-day version of Pittsburgh"

Neither hagiography nor its opposite, but note the opening sentence of this story: Low education levels holding Nevada’s economy back, official says. goes like this:

Nevada’s higher education levels are holding the region back from diversifying its economy and the city has become a modern-day version of Pittsburgh or Detroit, which once relied on one sector for its growth to its detriment, the director of a UNLV-based think tank said today. (emphasis added)

….  of what Pittsburgh was maybe??? I guess they kind of sneak in the past tense, but still they need the memo.  We have become iconic though, but we knew that already.  The region as Warhol… or is it vice versa?
