That whole area is dead.
For a century or so they manufactured steel. Steel towns arn't senic.
But the steel industry moved over-seas in the 70s. They have basically nothing to offer. To my mind, they never lost the steel mindset. When I am back there now, I see that they don't know how to make the most of what they have. Instead of trying to be like other cities, they need to take what they have and make it work. It is a beautiful place in my opinion. Compared to where I live now, the people are almost saints.

Yeah, if you are looking for glitz and glamor, then you arn't going to find it there.

Chasing the redcoats down the lane,
Then crossing the fields to emerge again
Under the trees at the turn of the road,
And only pausing to fire and load.
