I moved to Gary Indiana three years ago and friends in Chicago, around the country, and around the world were perplexed. Scary Gary? Well, check out the link. The whole Midwest/Rustbelt is filled with amazing nature, architecture, foods, culture, music etc. Thought a Rust Belt thread of good news might be interesting

Gary is ghetto, no way around it. That being said, it does indeed have some positives to it (such as the link you listed).

It's a cute article but glosses over the realities of the region. I wish the steel mills would go away. I understand it's the lifeblood of the economy there but omg, think of what a treasure NWI's coast could be free of the blight of those horrible eyesores. They've done more harm than good. I truly hate the mills with a passion. NWI in the long run would be so much better off without them. Sure it would be a more service industry/tourism area but man it would rachet up the quality of life of the Chicago metro area five knotches.

Same would be true in Waukegan and North Chicago. Imagine how valuable that real estate could be with a clean up.

Imagine how much nicer all Rustbelt cities would be if they would remove the affordable housing aka the projects. Atlanta might be on to something.

Public housing is pretty much in every region.

Now, where do said people go to, so that they don't cause a "chain reaction" of movement?
