The reworked downtown area allows for tourists to walk and see the retail shops and statues. Not a lot to see and do, but can walk a lot. The whole concept to tear down a lot of the city, and rebuild where they could came from the Fed Government. The city was in decline and the worst smog of the country. Many dollars went to try and revive. About 20 historical buildings had to be destroyed, but they kept what they could going forward. The waterfront, and the bridges are all redone, and now a convention center, aquarium and Choo Choo park in the Holiday Inn are anchors.
