Maybe the thread should shift its focus elsewhere, since Gary is just a tiny, tiny part of the Rust Belt.

This and there are areas like Pittsburgh and Grand Rapids that have improved or have held steady in many aspects.

I wholeheartedly agree. Visiting family in beautiful Middletown Ohio, a city made somewhat famous by last year's bestseller, HillBillyElegy. Major changes afoot here. The old Sorg Ooera House is about to reopen, dozens of new businesses have opened in recent years. Of course Middletown has the luxury of existing between Cincinnati and Dayton, not all struggling Rust Belt cities enjoy such a prime location.

I will say Northwest Indiana's housing market is on fire right now. Blown past pre recession levels, homes frequently going above listing price. Whether that translates into good news for Gary remains to be seen but there's a fast upward trend for the region. NWI will surpass several Chicago markets at the rate it's going.
