A new article in Vogue is highlighting the Rust Belt cities that are making America shine again. 

“A renaissance is currently under way in former manufacturing meccas, ushering in a new era of creatives opening design properties, culinary incubators, and galleries everywhere from Pennsylvania to Wisconsin and tiny towns in the middle,” writes Michaela Trimble. 

One of the biggest highlights is Pittsburgh. 

“As the birthplace of legendary pop icon Andy Warhol and the location where Andrew Carnegie grew to be one of the richest men in the world, Pittsburgh is the forefront for the next generation of creative connoisseurs in the Northeast,” Trimble highlights. 

Trendy brands like Google, Uber and the Ace Hotel now call the ‘Burgh (as its known by locals) home. 

Chicago may be the forefront of the “Rust Belt Revival.” 

“Today, new hotels and restaurant concepts are emerging at a fast clip throughout the city, spawning a new wave of creative talent in the Windy City,” says Trimble.

Cincinnati, Ohio, and Covington, Kentucky, are a pair of shining stars in the Rust Belt. 

“At their industrial peaks, Covington touted the title as the world’s largest iron fence producer and Cincinnati became known as the largest manufacturer of carriages in the world, both histories that fuel the brimming art scene now on the uptick in these Rust Belt hubs,” writes Trimble.
