Gary, Indiana going downhill - authorities looking at shrinking the place

Gary (Indiana) is in such decline that the people in charge of it are thinking of cutting off services to 40% of the City's land and relocating people to more viable areas of the city.

I commented below the article

A brief glance at the place in Google Earth / Streetview suggests they could maybe do more to take better advantage of their location near the water with Boardwalks, lighting displays, casino's, etc to try lure in tourist money.
All i could really see on Google Earth was an old steelworks taking up most the waterfront, a stretch of beach + some arty venue.

Though admittedly the place name does make it a bit innuendo prone, e.g. "you are now entering Gary".
