There's a city missing from the list.

Besides that, I'd say Baltimore. John Hopkins, Black & Decker... it looks like it's doing rather well, or at least in the right direction.

I think Detroit will just die out eventually just like Gary will.

I probably would have to say Pittsburgh. Baltimore has improved alot when I came there a few weeks ago. Pittsburgh has a more diversified economy than Baltimore.

What about Milwaukee? That city has been heading in the right direction if you ask me. Much revitalization etc.

Just wondering why Birmingham, Alabama isn't on the list. Its major industry was steel. Now it's medical fields and medical research, but steel is still a player.
