One must take into account sprawl. Look at how Toronto hasn't sprawled as much as Cleveland and Detroit. What's interesting is that streak of light between Cleveland and Akron. Buffalo is covered by clouds, and Toledo looks quite contained.
As an Urban Studies major at CSU, this is quite interesting to see in the suburbs. Usually we usually view the city of Cleveland and the inner-ring suburbs (e.g. Euclid, East Cleveland, Cleveland Heights, Lakewood, etc.) as having residents below the poverty line, which they do. It's interesting that the outer-ring suburbs are also experiencing their set of "urban" issues as well. I find it funny how these very same outer-ring suburbs thought they were invincible to the challenges that inner-city or inner-ring communities face, when in reality according to the above article, they're not. All cities and suburbs will face these challenges, or some sort of challenge one way or another!
