What Bert Has To Say About Cleveland-Elyria Metro Area

Cleveland is a major industrial city and gateway with a storied past and an improving future. The city’s industrial heritage is notable, with steel mills and shipping facilities along the waterfront and in the Cuyahoga River valley to the south. A number of factors—the decline of core industries in the 60’s and 70’s, the decay of the inner city, and pollution problems which culminated in the ignition of the river into a fiery inferno—gave the city a black eye from which it is still recovering, and the local nickname “mistake on the Lake.” A massive urban renewal program has cleaned up some of the industrial zones, created the entertainment-oriented “Flats” waterfront section, and brought new sports stadiums into the city.
