This is the second in a series on cities in the USofA. I don’t yet know how many there will be total. The first entry can be found here:
In the 1960s, many people realized that cities in the USofA were dying. There simply wasn’t any strong purpose for them as we moved from a manufacturing based economy to an economy that � well, I don’t really know what we do most of the time, but we sure don’t make stuff. That process, which accelerated in the 1960s, was one where many neighborhoods were deemed disposable, meaning that the people who lived in them were disposable, too. As these neighborhoods started to look like so much trash chucked out of a car window, gradually entire cities became disposable.
