I find its greatest characteristic is how dominating it is. Seen from every angle of the skyline, and just so massive that it seems to have pure dominion over its surroundings, almost in an ominous way yet still so alluring.

People don't realize just how far away it can be seen from. You can get a good look at it from the county airport and I've even seen it on clear days in the area of Elizabeth Township while visiting family. Believe it or not, some of the ridgetops of the Laurel Highlands in the vicinity of Ohiopyle actually afford views of the US Steel Building on very clear days. It's a really incredible sight on the horizon from the overlook at the peak of Pine Knob on clear days... a distance of about 50 miles!
