The core of Pullman never quite fell into complete disrepair and has managed to remain a very small oasis in an otherwise desolate urban landscape of chaos and decay.

Weirton, WV is the result of Weirton Steel Corporation. The city was basically formed around the mill. Weirton is a combination of 4 unincorporated communities that merged to form the city of Weirton. Because of this, the city feels very disjointed.

That would be the Osage, WV. Osage is now unincorporated, but the area is known as Scotts Run.

Orlando, FL.

It would have remained Bumpkinville without Disney, and would probably all but collapse without it.
