Sharing successes. Debating Problems. Connecting advocates.

Pittsburgh. Cleveland. Detroit. Youngstown. St. Louis. Cincinnati. Buffalo. Milwaukee.

More than a dozen cities; the same set of problems.

This site is intended to consolidate thoughtful, constructive stories about post-industrial cities across the Rust Belt. It was developed by two former newspaper reporters with ties to five Rust Belt cities, and it is maintained with help from half a dozen others from across the region.

Our aim present a balanced, realistic view of our cities, the challenges they face and the assets they maintain.

Welcome to the site. We hope you leave a little bit better informed.

Sincerely,

Angie Schmitt & Kate Giammarise
