What Bert Has To Say About Johnstown Metro Area

Johnstown is a small city located just west of the main ridge of the Alleghenies. To most outsiders it is associated with four historic and devastating, floods, the most recent in 1977. Today the city has a mixed and somewhat depressed economy and a slow pace of life, but at one time it was a major steel producing center. The tight valley-floor geography and relative distance to resources compared to other steel towns led to a long decline that climaxed with the 1977 flood. There are still some steel fabrication industries, but heavy industry and manufacturing are largely a thing of the past, and the city struggles to reinvent itself today as a service and minor high-tech player.
