I don't mind Erie. I live in the city upper east side was born and raised here. Get the winter blues when the temps become frigid but overall Erie isn't a bad place. I've certainly been to worse places thats for sure.Be nice to Erie! My parents and a lot of my side come from Erie. Haven't been there since 1980 but loved the area. Grandfather worked at Durst Pipe Organ Co. which is gone now. But hey there!
