What Bert Has To Say About Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia Metro Area

Charlotte is a modern urban and financial center grown up dramatically from its previous agricultural and regional banking roots. Today the city is reputedly the headquarters for more banks than any city outside New York, and is the home to such financial heavyweights as BankAmerica and Wachovia, as well as Lowe’s (home improvement retail) and specialty steel maker Nucor. A diverse commercial and industrial economy has developed around the financial industry. Downtown is a mix of contemporary skyscraper architecture and a number of well-preserved 19th-century neighborhoods.
