Natrona - Searching for Dream Street
Players with the Harrison Hoops Classic league play a basketball game at the Natrona Community Park and Playground.
After seeing so many empty basketball courts empty in the area, Derrick Harrison, a former Robert Morris University assistant coach started the Harrison Hoops Classic, a men's summer basketball league for players 18 and older.
Natrona, Pa., a traditional blue collar town in western Pennsylvania, is bordered by the ATI Brackenridge Plant. About eight blocks away, on the other side of town, stands the former Allegheny Ludlum Natrona melt shop which was shut down in 2010.
Originally known as East Tarentum, Natrona was built as a company town by the Pennsylvania Salt Manufacturing Company in the 1850s.
