Not really that hard. Look at similarly situated demographics and communities that did not have an arena built on top of them. They did not better. Look at the North Side. Look at a hundred other areas within the City limits, a thousand statewide, hundreds upon hundreds of thousands in the country in that time period. I explained why above. The damage was done from other factors, the arena being built was one of more numerous examples than you can count of the symptoms.

If the arena have never been built the Hill District would still be exactly what it is today, likely even worse.
