    St Anthony's built in 1900 by Polish Immigrants. They worked their day jobs to put food on the table and at night, built this church so they had a place to worship.

    That doesn't happen very much these days in America, now a days people want to know what America owes them. Very different times

    Tony, I absolutely love this painting! The light finding its way into the dark allies. The blend of the old and new. in the buildings. I could study this one for hours and see something different every minute Great work

    As churches seem to not be the trendy thing these days, many are closing and consolidating, opening back up as bars restaurants. I guess that is the new way of getting people to go to church, however, God does not live there anymore

    Some of the best food I ever had was in Chicago, from deep dish pizza to a hot dog, those people know how to eat.

    You really captured the spookiness. My memories are mostly snippets of wanting to turn on some lights. Strangely dark and moody for an educational building. Even the upper floors feel cave-like, which given that you've ridden an elevator for 30+ floors is an interesting feat.

    This is a man's world Motoring on the country roads of Pennsylvania I came across a town called Latrobe Pennsylvania. Latrobe is the home of Golf Ambassador Arnold Palmer and in 1904 the Banana Split was invented here. As I was racing down the rural roads at 70 mph, I...

    Yesterday will never return. Back in the 60's my neighborhood was buzzing, people everywhere. Today it has turned into a war zone, shops closed people hiding from the crime. I wonder what memories these kids will have of their childhood? Tony Brandstetter

    My hometown has been devastated in the same manner. It's now the 5th most dangerous city in the country.
    When I grew up there in the 60s and 70s, it was a great place to raise a family.
    However, the local economy was heavily dependent upon the auto industry. When it went south, so did the city. It was then compounded by poor local government. Industry continues to leave town, while local officials applaud their efforts to spur economic growth, which is represented by the addition of restaurants, bars, and sports complexes that draw tourism dollars. Minimum wage jobs don't cut it and violent crime is turning tourists and locals away. They just don't get it.

    How unfortunate that older parts of any city are left to deteriorate. What a waste of materials, etc. Once the buildings deteriorate, then so does the neighborhood. The sad thing is it's becoming expected. What happened to proactivity?

    #5 Thats very sad and I agree, success does not come easy at all to those who have never seen it and been plagued by growing up around violence, lack of food etc.. their entire lives. How nice that you were able to spend time with that young man. I see the people who work with kids (even former gang members) who work with them and it's not an easy task at all. If it were that easy, we'd have many more kids striving for more.

    When I mentioned I see the people who work with kids, I meant on documentaries. I live in a small town so things are different here.

    Too many people suffer. Thanks for sharing what you did @Aurorasa Sima

    When I was young and I got a bad grade at school, my parents would ask what my problem. Now if a student gets a bad grade, the parent ask the teacher what is their problem. Accountability for my actions worked well for me and it seemed to work well for my friends. .

    Now I am going to sound old, well, I am old... When I was a kid, I knew all of my neighbors, the neighbors knew my parents, I was lucky to have two loving parents. However, it was not easy to get into mischief, I would be reprimanded by the neighbors,, who would tell my mom how would take action and then my father would get home from work and open the gates of hell. As a result, I stayed out of trouble.

    #4 Thanks for the empathy. It´s a nice break from the "they can just get their a... up and get out (add random "how I succeeded xy" story)" people.

    When I came here they made a mistake and booked me in the very, very wrong part of town. I heard a shooting in my first night.

    I spent some time with a 21-year-old. We played Xbox and hung out. He was a good kid. Born to addicts whom he never saw work a regular job. Surrounded by gangsters, drug dealers and violence. In a world as small as a few blocks. Everyone ripping everyone else off.

    It´s not as easy as some think to have a success mindset without any successful person around you. When I told him about his potential and possibilities he was surprised, to say the least.

    I moved to a better area after 2 weeks. I hope I´ll never have to see an area like that again in my life and I wish nobody had to live there.

    Even if you offered the kids every good thing today it would be a long process until they could take it.

    It makes me very sad.

    #2 I wish there was an easy answer @Aurorasa Sima. You're so right, 'the world those kids live in is so different from ours.' If only......... we could turn back time and keep some things as they were. :(

    That is very sad @Tony Brandstetter, and the photo tells a tale! I visited my hometown 2 weeks ago and had not been to 'uptown' area for years. I was wishing I had my camera because there were so many empty buildings that were bustling in the 80's-90's. They were iconic. It's sad to see such architecture go by the wayside, some even had weeds growing up them. Great capture!

    Sorry to hear that the area you live in is seeing this kind of change.

    I live close to Chicago. There is an area ... It just makes you feel helpless because you know it could not even be changed in one generation. What can we do? Can someone tell me? The world those kids live in is so different from ours that we don´t even understand it. A world of war, drugs, fear.

    2 years ago an 18-year-old kid posted a video mocking another kid. "we BDK" (Black Disciples Killer). He got shot the next day while riding his bike. He carried a gun. His cousin who gave an ABC interview got shot too.

    How reach them? Suggesting a mindful meditation will not work.

    While I lived in Germany I did not know that hip hop was real.
