McKeesport, PA

McKeesport, once the vital, prosperous heart of the Mon Valley, America's Steel Capital, and the largest city therein. Now, largely a ghost city, where the ruins of the past convey more than words possibly could. There is a haunting energy here, a hopelessness, and a tragic, quiet beauty. McKeesport is where I choose to live, and where I find constant inspiration.
