Lost Gary, Indiana


Lost Gary, Indiana

Lost Gary, Indiana (Jerry Davich) A poster child for our nation s urban experimentation a century ago, Gary was forged with hype and hope, dreams and sweat, political agendas and tons of steel. The hardscrabble city attracted all kinds, from shady scoundrels and famous architects to hardworking immigrants and brilliant entrepreneurs. Boasting 180,000 residents at its peak, the booming melting pot eventually faded away under the afflictions of urban decay, racial unrest and political upheaval. Jerry Davich explores the remnants of Gary s glory days, from Union Station in ruins to City Methodist Church stripped of its soul. Revisit the Sheraton Hotel s demise, Emerson High School s hard lessons, Vee-Jay Records last release and a devastated downtown filled only with façades and fond memories.
