Empty Gary

a condo across from my house has been becoming realer everyday. When I moved in there was nothing, and now there's a row of 6 houses and as a finishing touch yesterday they layed out some grass over the construction sidewalk and planted two trees. Now it seems like that building has been there forever, thanks to roll-out grass landscaping. No expense spared.

While riding my bike through Gary, Indiana I rode by a whole city that seemed old, built years ago with big arches and intricate industrial town buildings. Almost all the buildings were RUINED. Gary can't even seem to afford windows, they are all missing or broken. Did all the people flee Gary and buy condos in Logan Square? Shouldn't we feel guilty for abandoning our cities or is it simply the way of things to have populations swash around like large pond waves?
