So you're saying that nowhere else is sunny with water? I'm good, thanks

No, I am saying a geographic fact. Gary Indiana sits at the vortex of Sweetwater, sunshine, and the breadbasket of the world.

No place remotely similar.

Gary, IN. The new site for Aztec sun worship.


To anyone else, a town to avoid at all costs.

Never said it was the greatest place ever. But let me plant a seed in your mind. In the coming years when you hear about the growing buzz about Gary, Northwest Indiana, as well as places like Youngstown and other down and out Rust Belt Cities, remember this thread. And realize your opinions reflect the Past, not the future, not even the present. Peace and Love from the vortex

Home of Boeings corporate fleet
Rumors that Southwest Airlines will soon start commercial operations at airport
Highest biodiversity in Midwest
One of the most beautiful national parks
A 6 mile beach with insane views of the most beautiful skyline on Earth
A thriving Indiana University campus
Three South Shore stations
Casinos
The nation's largest steel mill
The most unique topography in Chicagoland
Chicagoland culture, Indiana taxes
I'll leave this here.

So you didn't say it's the greatest place ever, just that's it's the best location in the nation....which again, is far from the truth

Yes to best location, no to greatest place ever, that was your editorial of my post. Btw, Why you suppose 75% of the nation's steel is forged here? Of course, you may be of the squeamish set who has a phobia of industry. It's the vortex buddy, it's where Chicago would have been if trains had existed in 1820s. Geography is destiny. Sit back and watch what's about to happen. Or stay stuck in the paradigms of the past.

You got to give it for location. You might prefer a different climate, etc., but logistically, Gary/Chicago is in an incredible spot.

Just curious though.....what location do you think is "best" in the US (in terms of access to the rest of the US, roads, rails, etc.)?

Sorry, I don't prefer to live in a crime filled area that has long been a bad place overall to live. You may be in a nice part Gary, but the bad part is awful.

I am from a small blue collar town, "industry" is al there is/was.
