Ecoart: Vision, Imagination, & Place

PSUEcoartSlds29_36.001Until the 1950’s McKeesport was the second-busiest commercial district in the region, home to U.S. Steel’s National Tube division. Today, it is half its former population, has high unemployment, and the downtown is a shadow of what it once was. However, it is uniquely situated at the confluence of two rivers, with stunning views as you see here. It is also a key rest stop along a National Scenic Trail: the Great Allegheny Passage that goes from Pittsburgh to D.C. (see trail map on left).
