Once upon a time the city of Akron, Oh was a flourishing place full of promises and opportunities. Yes, looking at the grey, desolate, nearly abandoned ghost town that remains today, it is quite hard to believe. However, not so many years ago, Akron was crowned the “Rubber Capitol” of the world. Companies like Good Year and Firestone called this place their home and exported more tires than any other place in the universe, and in turn, provided the city with plentiful employment. But, unfortunately those years have passed, and it seems Akron is more famous for what has left it behind than for what is still there (yeah, that’s a Lebron reference and yeah, I’m still bitter).
