City Makers: American Futures Project -- Erie, PA
Erie, Pennsylvania has become the focus of two of The Atlantic's national correspondents. Husband and wife James and Deborah Fallows have been working on the City Makers: American Futures project for The Atlantic for more than three years now, traveling the country by plane to report on how America is rebuilding itself through interesting cities and towns.

As the Fallows continue their coverage of Erie, we'll continue sharing the updates with you, because if you're like us, you're proud of Erie's accomplishments and are excited to see its story being told on the national level.
