    Sadly, as of the fall of 2016 95% of the buildings/structures you see in this video have been completely demolished. The downtown area of Cairo is now just a few remaining buildings. There is a lot of history to this small city, unfortunately it dealt with many issues over the years and not much of the city remains for those that still live there. On my visit the few residents that I did interact with were very friendly towards me. I never felt scared or uncomfortable. Just saddened by what has happened to this city over the last 55-60 years.

    From what im beginning to understand the residents are not all that friendly as far as welcoming new business

    I am very sorry to hear that.
    No being on this planet should ever be treated with disrespect.
    Love and blessings to you.

    @5158307 Once nice town was a hellhole racist hotspot for African/Americans. Back int he early 60s all black boycotted that bastian for racisim for years...racism brought this town down! I remember white and Negro water fountains and blacks could eat inside restaurants. Blacks really suffered down there and I was one as a child

    Excellent video; sparse, austere, achingly poetic. Cairo is one of the first industrial ghosttowns of America, soon to be joined by Detroit, Camden and others

    This film is great too. It is a sad story of a once bustling town that has slowly died over the last 35 to 40 years. I, myself love to go there and see the abandoned hospital where I was born, the house I lived in and the stores I shopped at with my mother 40 years ago. Its great that others are interested in Cairo's past and bleak future. Thanks for another great film.
