Here's some Great Reccession Gothic, post-industrial style, from Jim Kunstler, "Elegy". Kunstler drives across the Gary, Indiana area:
This is what remains out in the Heartland of our country: a place so dire that you want to race shrieking from it and forget what you saw there.
[A]n infrastructure for daily life... now had the special patina of supernatural rot over it that only comes from materials not found in nature disintegrating in surprising and unexpected ways, sometimes even sublimely, like the sheen of an oil slick on water at a certain angle to the sun. There was a Chernobyl-like grandeur to it, as of the longed-for end of something enormous that hadn't worked out well.
[P]eople were coming and going in their cars from the welfare ruins of East Chicago to the even more spectacular tatters of Gary, where the old front porches are disappearing into prairie grass and the 20th century retreats into the mists of mythology.
