What Bert Has To Say About Elmira Metro Area

Elmira is a quiet, nondescript town in the hills of southwestern New York with a fairly diverse economic base. The biggest industrial landmark is the Corning Glass Works 14 miles west in Corning, which benefited from the 1990’s fiber optic boom, fell on hard times, then picked up again with the growing flat panel display business. Such cycles, though not as sharp, have hurt other area businesses, and employment and income levels have had their bumps.
