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.

Better than Auburn at least - 12/23/2020
Born here and lived here all my life. Not great, barely even good. It's a bit racist but not as bad as Northern Maine. City can't keep the damn sidewalks clear of snow... Read More
