Braddock again and again.....

CNBC follows up on the NY Times piece on Braddock that ran Sunday. See their video here. WTAE tags along with their version.

For perspective for how long we have failed Braddock. Read a story from 1962 that describes Braddock, McKeesport and parts of the Mon Valley as a "hard core unemployment area"


Superbowl postscript. Read the WSJ Numbers Guy on the metrics of Six-Burgh and a benchmarking site even I had never heard of. See the Donovan Index which is supposedly "the ultimate ranking of cities regarding major professional sports championships. It identifies once and for all the true "City of Champions." It says we are #6 overall, just ahead of "New Jersey" which is not a city.
