Rebuilding the Rust Belt, @RTRustBelt
By Patrick Miner
I live (car-free) in Camden, NJ. In the evenings I advocate for making cities healthier, more prosperous environments for people. During week days (sometimes weekends, too), I work as a structural engineer for Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA). Opinions expressed on this blog are 100% my own.
Having also lived, worked and/or studied in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Bethlehem, Harrisburg (PA), Athens, Columbus (OH), Washington, D.C., and New York City, I gained a sense for post-industrial American cities, their challenges, inherent advantages, and efforts at rebuilding.
The purpose of this blog is to develop my ideas and contribute to public discussion towards Rebuilding the Rust Belt.
I am a licensed Professional Engineer in the state of Pennsylvania.
