From Steel Production to Sweet Pension: a Pittsburgh Revolution

By Cara Larose Subscribe to RSS | May 17th 2012 | Views:

CNN and CBS recently released their lists of the top cities and towns in the United States to spend the so-called twilight years. While the best place to retire is largely a matter of perspective, the two lists agree on one thing. Steel City, U.S.A. is one of the best places to head to when retirement beckons.

Ask an American the first thing that comes to mind about Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and he would likely answer “steel.” Over the course of history, the city was well-known for being the heart of steel production in the country. While the Pittsburgh today has shifted its focus on other industries, some of its steel past still remains. In fact, most of the old steel mills have been transformed for use by real estate companies.

With many steel mills converted into places of leisure, the revitalized air of the city is on a steady road to improvement. Data from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection reports that much of the Pittsburgh area has air quality ranging from good to moderate. This covers Pittsburgh as well as a handful of cities and towns such as Franklin Park, Ellwood City and Steubenville. Of course, experts believe the air above the city can still improve.

With one of every three people over the age of 50, it’s no wonder Pennsylvania is home to one of the largest senior citizen communities in the U.S. It also comes as no surprise that the assisted living PA has to offer is reputed for its high quality of service. Experts predict that “America will continue to grow old in the next few years.” This means that the presence of retirees will continue to rise over the years and it can be expected that the demand for assisted living will also increase.

For the record, Pittsburgh today is no longer the gray and polluted steel mill that history once knew. It is still alternatively known as Steel City, but this is primarily in reference to its past and its steel structures. In a few years’ time, the assisted living Pittsburgh has to offer might as well be its next claim to fame.

For more information about Pennsylvania as a good place to retire, you can check out the lists at and There are a number of assisted living Pennsylvania retirement communities in the area, so you can be assured that your parents and grandparents will be properly taken care of should the need arise.
