EC, which stands for East Cleveland, Ohio, is a ghetto ass, corrupt city on the East Side of Cleveland. In EC, every other house is abandoned, and some are literally falling down. Crime is out of control, and the city is too broke to hire more police. There are few bright spots in EC. There's no reason to go to EC unless you're looking for drugs, prostitutes, or some other illicit activity. It was the first city in the US to install automated traffic cameras, but because of corrupt deal-making, very little of the money from tickets actually makes it to the police. It's the former home to Gilded Age millionaires such as John D. Rockefeller.
The saddest thing about EC is that it was once a really nice city, but now it's just a god-forsaken hell hole.
Note: there is a very small part of EC that is still nice, it's called Forest Hills, and it's a neighborhood planned and designed by John D. Rockefeller's son in the early 1920s to be an idyllic upper class community.
