"A barber shop in #Elmira, New York. Elmira and nearby towns in New York's Southern Tier, a part of the state that runs parallel to Pennsylvania, are struggling. Years ago, the region was a manufacturing powerhouse. But over time companies have downsized, or left altogether. Now, residents of the area refer to their home as the "Forgotten Tier." In late August, hundreds of people in the heavily Republican area turned up in Bainbridge, New York, in support of secession. Some carried signs that read "#upstatelivesmatter." @nathaniel_brooks_photo documented Elmira and other Southern Tier towns on #nytassignment." By nytimes on Instagram.
