Parts of York look much as they did in colonial times, with a downtown area of historic brick buildings and nearby factories, farmers markets, and a large town square which all suggest the city’s importance before and during the Industrial Revolution. With a Harley-Davidson plant and climate-control maker York International, the area has a diverse base of mostly small manufacturers..

The proximity to larger East Coast cities, particularly Baltimore and Washington D.C. south, brings in new residents. Some of these derive income from these larger cities and seek lower living costs and small town living in the York area.
