What Bert Has To Say About Erie Metro Area

Erie, Pennsylvania’s third-largest city, is a major port and industrial center in the northwest corner of the state. Located between Cleveland, Ohio, and Buffalo, New York, about 75 miles from each, Erie has a pleasant if somewhat declining small-town feel and many historic sites. Its role as a shipping point for the steel industry has been declining for years, but is being replaced by plastics and some high value-added manufacturing activities.
