Exceptions included Boston, New Orleans, Newark (Newark, New Jersey), Seattle, Philadelphia (with a much smaller network than once had existed), Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Toronto. In a trend started in the 1980s, some American cities have brought back streetcars, examples of these being Memphis (Memphis, Tennessee), Portland (Portland, Oregon), Tampa, Little Rock and Seattle. Several additional cities, such as Washington, D.C., Tucson and Detroit are planning or proposing to do the same. Pittsburgh kept most of its streetcar system serving the city and many suburbs until January 27, 1967, making it the longest-lasting large-network U.S. streetcar system. In the late 20th century, several cities installed light rail systems, in part along the same corridor as the old streetcars.

In the article, McManus proposed several reasons why a city, like Chicago, Pittsburgh, or Scranton (Scranton, Pennsylvania), might benefit from a tourist attraction like Steamtown. McManus went on to explain why the business was failing in Vermont: past failed management, an isolated location and the lack of signs on Interstate 91, which the state opposed.

By the 1830s, the university faced severe financial pressure to abandon its traditional liberal education in favor of the state legislature's (Pennsylvania General Assembly) desire for it to provide more vocational training. The decision to remain committed to liberal education nearly killed the university, but it persevered despite its abandonment by the city and state.
