So I have to sell my existing home, live in Gary for six months before purchasing it, then live in the home for at least five years unless I want to forfeit everything? Golly, where do I sign?

That Gary Sanitary area welcome sign does not handle solid waste. Solid waste is screened at 15th and Clay street.

This is how Gary greets people driving from Chicago. It's accurate, as Gary is a bit of a sh*thole... Seriously, you can smell it from way before the sign.

I lived right down the street from there for 4 years, right by the South Shore tracks.


Damn. Your sense of smell must be shot. I bet somebody could take a dump in the same room as you and you wouldn't even notice.

Jument: RepoManTSM: Gary is the only city I've driven through that I could smell with the windows closed in my car.

To be fair, any industrial town is like that. There's a town in Ontario with a pulp and paper mill (or used to be when I was a kid) the absolutely stank every single time we drove through it.


Probably Dryden, if you ever took the Trans-Canada.
