Seat view from section 219 at Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Sat here for the season opener last season vs. the New York Jets in what was one of the best football atmospheres I've been in. We started off by tailgating in Lot 1 outside of the stadium which is where all of the seasoned tailgaters gather hours before the game even begins. You can buy parking passes for those lots on some of the pre-paid parking websites if you don't know a season ticket holder.
If I had to rate section 219 on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give it a 3. The northern end zone corners don't have the best sight lines and you're still not all that close to the field but I would rather have seats here than the upper level where the steps are as steep Mt. Everest and are not a whole lot less expensive.
The rows were extremely wide in 219 so if you know where the aisle seats are, buy those. The cup holders are at an angle too so I would take a few good drinks before setting your drink down.
The fans in our row were awesome. High fives were all around. Our usher was also super nice and helpful - asked us if we needed help finding our seats and locating the restrooms.

Just so you know, there are plenty of $5 parking garages downtown North Shore which means you would have to walk across the Fort Duquesne or Clemente Bridge to get to Heinz. It's not a bad trek, plenty of other Steelers fans will be doing the same. Some of the $5 garages include: Fort Duquesne/6th Street garage, Oliver garage, 5th Avenue Place Garage. If you're staying at one of the hotels on South Shore, you can always just take the Gateway Clipper boat to the game. It's $5 each way per person but is an experience.

To give you an idea what the view of the field is like from section 219, here is a Youtube video shot from there during a Steelers/Kansas City Chiefs game at Heinz Field.
