What Bert Has To Say About Lewiston-Auburn Metro Area


Lewiston, at 35,000 the second largest city in the state, lies across the Androscoggin River from its twin city, Auburn. Once a large textile center, Lewiston and Auburn are currently reinventing themselves as a manufacturing and service center with high-tech businesses, but the transition is far from complete. This is an oft-repeated story in Maine, and some towns are doing better than others: Portland south and Waterville 50 miles north are doing much better, while Augusta, the state capital 25 miles north, remains surprisingly depressed.
