Pittsburgh is a city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the United
States and is the county seat of Allegheny County. It is located at the
confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers. Few centuries
ago, it was a keenly contested coastal region where the French and British
empires used to often lock horns for the mineral-rich Allegheny Mountains.
Pittsburgh is nicknamed the ‘Steel City’ and the ‘City of Bridges’ because
it is home to more than 300 steel-related businesses and because it
contains more than nearly 450 bridges respectively.
