Topic: Investing in Mon Valley real estate

Guest: Jonathan Stark of White Oak

How Topic Discussed: Jonathan Stark is swimming against popular opinion by investing in real estate in Downtown McKeesport. He's building a new commercial building on the site of the old Memorial Theater, and he's recently purchased the 1906-vintage People's Bank Building, which has long been vacant. What makes him think that real estate in McKeesport's struggling downtown can be successful? Why has he committed himself to these investments? What suggestions and advice does he have for people who might want to replicate what he's doing?
