It encapsulates social and economic changes: \\"population loss, rising crime rates, loss of union jobs particularly in manufacturing, White flights to the suburbs, and a generally declining urban environment,\\" in which massive, but abandoned factories rusted away and scarred the landscape of once vibrant cities.
