And rightly so!

And along the same lines as Galena, check out Jerome, AZ and Lead, SD.

Cities which once were booming and then collapsed under their own weight due to hard economic times and also due to "white flight" to their suburban areas experienced when blacks migrating from the South settled down in these cities.
Gotta make a distinction here. Minneapolis and KC are not Rust Belt cities. Apparently, St. Louis is arguable according to wikipedia. I don't think "white flight" distiunguishes a city as Rust Belt either, though most RB cities experienced this.

I think the 'white flight' in Pittsburgh happened a long time ago. And Pgh is still predominantly white. FWIW. Pgh is just not growing, it's shrinking.

you're right. i looked at it more closely after I read your post. at a glance it does look like a McMansion but upon further inspection, the columns(?) on the right give it away - it's definitely an older house.

Interesting. I always generally thought the Rustbelt meant the same thing as the Midwest. Guess I was wrong. I do know for a fact that the "Rustbelt core" primarily focused around the Great Lakes, extending as far east as Buffalo and Syracuse, New York.
