Searching for Dream Street – by Pete Marovich

The open hearth stacks are all that remain of the US Steel's Homestead Works that were located in Homestead, Pa. Closed in 1986, the steel plant was demolished and a shopping development was built on the site leaving the stacks to pay homage to the past. While the shopping center has created jobs, they are mostly minimum wage retail and service jobs as opposed to the high paying mill jobs that were lost.
