Wow! Detroit has some really crazy areas! We begin our journey in Detroit on M102 No, that’s not a radio station That’s 8 mile road We drove down 8 mile road on our way into Detroit 8 mile road is north of Detroit, about 8 miles north of downtown Along the way, we saw many shuttered businesses, and other downtrodden sights Of course, 8 mile was made famous by the movie 8 mile, starring Eminem 8 Mile Road has also always been the physical and cultural dividing line between the wealthier, predominantly white northern suburbs of Detroit and the poorer, predominantly black city You can see on this map exactly what I’m referring to As we drive, heading west, on our left is the black population, where people earn about $30k a year, and on our right is the white population where people earn about $75k a year Then, we left 8 mile road and hopped onto 75 South to head into Detroit proper We got off the 75 South at Grand Avenue and headed west We read online that an area near Rosa Parks Blvd was particularly bad, so we went there first As it turned out, this wasn’t even the worst area we would see At this point, we were 4 miles from downtown For perspective you can see on this map where we were The homes here were in pretty bad shape, but like what we had seen in Flint about two hours earlier, in many of these downtrodded neighborhoods, people were not outside The streets were just eerily empty Did you know Detroit has lost ⅔ of its population? I’ve been to east Cleveland once That was really bad But in East Cleveland, at least they had houses, not just open spaces Detroit has lost 1 2 million people in the last 70 years Of course, that’s because of the auto industry decline, mostly That’s pretty common knowledge In the neighborhood we were in, rent was about $450 a month for the entire house You can see why Now, we’re going to let this go for a minute or two and then take you to the worst area we saw that morning So we left that neighborhood and took Linwood, one of the really bad thoroughfares in Detroit We wanted to go to the Northwest Goldberg neighborhood, which we read was one of the worst in the city Of course, Detroit has issues with crime and poverty One in three people in Detroit lives in poverty In 1950, 82% of Detroit was white Now, it’s 82% black And, of the top 12 employers in Detroit, all but 2 are government jobs Meaning there’s not a lot of private enterprise here Of course, people talk of a Detroit resurgence While the downtown area itself is improving and adding jobs, the outlying areas like this haven’t even been touched And apparently, there are businesses who want to grow in Detroit, but they can’t find people who are either motivated or skilled to take those jobs So the city is actively trying to recruit skilled people to the city, offering tax breaks and cheap housing But progress is progress, and there’s an air of hope and optimism among some Detroit folks Mostly in areas not close to this For perspective here’s a map that shows where we are from downtown We’re even closer to downtown and it’s really abandoned as we’ll see Now this neighborhood wasn’t really dangerous - at least we didn’t see any people lingering and never felt threatened So whoever actually lives in this neighborhood was either hiding inside, sleeping or not home Sometimes, you’d see a guy on a bike or a few people on their porch, but that was it But it was really interesting to see block after block where you would see large areas where homes were razed, and the city was essentially turning parts of the city back to nature It’s an urban prairie The homes left are mostly gutted or have some sort of fire damage Some of the alleys looked like hiking trails But it isn't scary That’s because it’s early in the day, we can see, and we’re driving in a car that looks like an undercover cop car So people are giving us a wide berth Now, we’re going to let this video just roll We have about 15 minutes more of just footage, where we looked at different areas of Detroit - all on the city’s northwest end For the most part, these areas were run down, but occasionally, as you’ll see there are small areas that aren’t too bad SUBSCRIBE to get REGIONAL INFORMATION about where YOU live bit ly 2deRUSV Our goal is to combine recent data, fun videos, and thoughts about local culture into bite-sized snacks of shareable information We call it bite-sized regional infotainment We try to paint a picture of what’s happening in a region based on “Friday Night Science” — how’d you argue at a bar To do that, we gather data from around the web to help determine a wide array of factors about where you live, things like safety, desirability, and culture We have another channel, too, which has other cool videos Subscribe to it too

I drove through the WORST parts of Gary, Indiana This is what I saw

This was dangerous Gary might be the most rundown place I ve ever seen In this video, I drove north on I-65 from the Lafayette area to the city of Gary, Indiana, one of the worst places you can live in the country It was a clear day with highs in the mid 50s, and a recent snowfall had already melted The day was Saturday, December 20, 2019 and it was about 1 in the afternoon As I pulled into Gary, it was immediately clear that this rundown city in northwest Indiana would resemble the slum that I had written about in the past, but had not yet seen firsthand What was surprising, though, was it wasn’t AS bad as I had thought it would be Of course, there were some very bad areas, which we’ll see shortly But the dangerous riff raff which is notorious among all dangerous regions, was still indoors It’s become clear that in order to avoid confrontations, I must drive these dangerous neighborhoods in the daytime After all, a somewhat to do white man with a camera on top of his Jeep doesn’t necessarily blend in And the rows and rows of slums that I had seen pictures of are slowly disappearing, as Gary, like other struggling communities, was slowly being turned back to nature We’ll begin by driving through downtown Gary, and visit a housing project, and then maneuver through the worst streets I could find, through online searches, forums and by zig zagging throughout the city for a number of hours on this unusually warm winter afternoon Before I headed to the projects and then on to the worst parts of Gary, I drove Main Street in downtown Gary, which was grimy and forlorn I wanted to head south on Connecticut Street and head towards Gary’s more infamous areas, the Dorie Miller Housing Project This will be my first stop, but as you’ll see, I didn’t stay long Here’s the Dorie Miller Housing Project Now, I’ve been to some really bad areas before, and I am rarely intimidated, but the vibe I was getting here made it VERY clear that I stood out and it just wasn’t safe for me to be driving through these projects So I left quickly Perhaps if i come back, I’ll venture deeper into Dorie Miller’s bowels The next stop was an area that online research indicated would be a really rundown area A slum if you will That’s the way I went I was not disappointed Not only was this pretty much the worst part of Gary that I witnessed, but like many other ghettos I’ve toured, there was a lot of open space - where homes which once proudly stood had been leveled There were many open fields or wooded areas which looked even more hopeless with the early winter brown tint There wasn’t really much of anything in Gary that was green Gary’s population was once nearly 180,000 That was in 1960 Like other rust belt cities in the region, it was a restructuring of the steel industry which hit this city hard Now, the city is a shell of its former self, with a population of 80,000 people It’s estimated nearly one-third of all houses in this city located just 20 minutes south of Chicago, are unoccupied or abandoned Upon a little more research, I came across the dollar lot program, something I hadn’t heard of before For a buck you can buy a home like this as long as you fix it up and live there for 5 years and have a decent job Apparently, the program is limited to certain homes, and there’s a waiting list Gary is fighting blight in other ways Besides just straight up knocking down large swaths of homes, some of the larger buildings downtown we saw earlier will one day be turned into ruin gardens The plan isn’t to just demolish the entire building, but to remove the most fallen down parts of buildings and leave the rest of the buildings there, encouraging gathering points where people can plant gardens, put in benches and tour Gary’s history Gary is challenged for sure While many lament areas like this as democratic strongholds that won’t encourage growth or incentivize the population to take initiative and fend for themselves, there’s been millions set aside to help this mess Alliance Steel plans to open a new $35 million facility HMD Trucking recently announced plans to build a $6 million trucking depot, set to create 500 jobs $5 million more in state funds have been set aside to address blight A plan to revitalize the waterfront areas is in the works, and Gary’s trainyards and direct connection to Chicago are being restored and rebuilt to encourage more tourism to the area But we’re a LONG way from that Can Gary rebound? Perhaps But it’s going to take more than millions of dollars in band aids The people who live here are going to have to decide they want change and do the hard work themselves At one point I was way too exposed, off in a far corner of town with no help nearby I almost became trapped in an alley due to the debris and narrow roadways It was time to leave Gary before I became stranded or approa

I drove through the WORST parts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania This is what I saw

What is happening in America? Pittsburgh suburbs are a total wasteland! The last stop on our road trip 2019 2020 was in the city of Pittsburgh We took I-79 south through pretty rolling Pennsylvania countryside, which had been recently snowed upon However, this winter has been an unusually warm one in this region, and the temperature was a balmy 40 degrees We pulled into Pittsburgh on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at 2 in the afternoon In today’s video, we’ll give you a brief rundown on the city of Pittsburgh, share a few insights and a couple of experiences Then, we’ll take you to a Pittsburgh suburb, which was perhaps the absolute worst place I’ve ever seen in person Pittsburgh is located at the convergance of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers The whole Pittsburgh metro area is surrounded by hills The city made it name in the steel industry, hence the big steel bridges and the city’s football team, the Steelers Pittsburgh is a very poor city, and we’ll get a look at that in a minute But it has SOME rich people Particularly in the Shadyside and North Squirrel Hill neighborhoods Here’s North Squirrel Hill This is the richest neighborhood in Pittsburgh where residents earn about $100,000 a year on average, and homes cost about $500,000 This is shadyside, a modern chic neighborhood with upscale shopping and dining Women wear their yoga pants to lunch here, even in foot deep snow The food is decent I didn’t get a chance to try the Pittsburgh version of the Cheesesteak, but I DID have perhaps the best sandwich I’ve ever had at a place called Pork and Beans downtown It was called their classic, and was composed of primarily beef brisket and cheese I didn’t think to take a picture of it until it was gone I also ran into a guy who wore WAY too much cologne who I swore is on the Pittsburgh Steelers I should have asked him Of course we didn’t come here to walk around downtown We came to see the WORST part of town I had originally planned to film two northeast pittsburgh slums - areas called Homewood and Larimer, which I had heard resemble the gutted out areas we had seen in other dying rust belt communities But in downtown, I asked a friendly bartender in what she thought of Homewood and Larimer She told me if I REALLY wanted to see the WORST areas of Pittsburgh, I needed to see the south side She said it was one of the most dangerous cities in the country - a place called McKeesport Whenever there’s a shooting or a crime or all the cops go somewhere, it’s in McKeesport, she said So the next day, we went off to Mckeesport to see what all the fuss was about McKeesport is a tiny city that’s only about 10 miles south of Pittsburgh, but because the region is so hilly, getting there takes nearly 30 minutes on windy, sad, beaten up roads Just like every other former steel town, McKeesport was hit hard when steel makers left the region This city once had more than 50,000 people, but now, it has less than 20,000 Here’s another cop We saw 5 in the 20 minutes we spent driving around There are many other areas on Pittsburgh’s fringes like McKeesport - but not nearly so dangerous or destitute This is another area 10 minutes from McKeesport on the city’s east side Pittsburgh’s whole east side of pockmarked with crime and poor rundown neighborhoods We also visited the original ghetto hoods we had planned to visit Here’s a look at Homewood and Larmer on Pittsburgh’s northeast side These places need help They need a community leader to step up and do something or these places are going to disappear one day, as everyone either flees or dies These neighborhoods are just a small glimpse as to what it looks like when a city like Pittsburgh goes from a population of 700,000 to 300,000 in only about 60 years The rust belt tour was over We had witnessed places like East St Louis, Lansing, Buffalo and Pittsburgh and how the loss of industry and a shrinking economy has made these cities sad, dangerous, empty and soulless These places don’t look like America of the 1950s They don’t even look like they should be in America at all As I pulled back into Raleigh, the following day, I was greeted by a muggy, party sunny sky, a far cry from the cold I had experienced for the past three weeks But nowhere near as cold as it should have been The green colors and overall positive vibes were welcome It was nice to be home Music Kevin MacLeod, Chris Zabriskie, TrackTribe, Wayne Jones, Asher Fulero This channel talks about America, different states, education, travel, geography and what it s like to live in different places in America Business email robikmarketing1@gmail com Mappy Mappy@HomeSnacks net He ll do his best to answer your questions and fan

Top 10 towns devastated by a single employer or industry

Top 10 towns devastated by a single employer or industry Have you ever wondered how a town gets abandoned? There is a bunch of reasons why one does but most of the time it is the loss of a single employer Company towns have failed over and over and that is what this video is all about, towns that collapsed when the main employer left town or closed down Many of these towns have a few residents still hanging on but there is no Airbnb, timeshare, or new mortgages to help revitalize these towns I m not sure you could get a home loan for most of these towns and I doubt homeowners insurance is reasonable either I hope you enjoy the video Thanks for checking out the channel I hope you enjoyed today s video If there is a state, city or town you d like us to do a video about let us know in the comment section Stuff I use Microphone s amzn to 2mfNH7A Boom Arm s amzn to 2meqRNM Sound Cage s amzn to 2leJYXM Software s amzn to 2mknQeU Lighting s amzn to 2kDJt9g Travel and Equipment Essentials www amazon com shop worldaccordingtobriggs Thanks for stopping by The world according to Briggs, I make lists Not just lists of random stuff, I make them about states, cities, towns and other places in the United States I post 3 times a week and sometimes live stream Enjoy Business & Voice over email Graveyardsjim@gmail com Mailing Address World According to Briggs 20449 SW Tualatin Valley Hwy #354 Aloha, Oregon 97003 Travel books you need to read Blue Highways amzn to 2fLiF1b Travels with Charley in Search of America amzn to 2BVcQqr colorado timeshare airbnb mortgage suns
