Those of us who grew up in Lake County, Indiana, during Gary's golden age never imagined Gary would become a ghost town of decaying buildings, vacant lots and high crime.
 
Gary, Indiana, a short drive from Chicago -- was once heralded as "The City of the Century" -- and is still remembered as hometown to hundreds of thousands of people who grew up there. We remember wide, tree-lined residential streets with nice houses, trimmed hedges, flower gardens, picket fences, and friendly neighborhoods populated by families of different nationalities and races. We remember fine schools and churches, the beaches along Lake Michigan and the bustling, vibrant downtown area of Broadway and beyond.

My name is Dana and I grew up in Gary, Indiana, in the 1950s and 1960s. That's me in my first-grade picture from old Jefferson Elementary school.

Welcome to GARY IN MEMORIES ... my tribute to Gary's golden era and the people who were a part of it.
