** A very special case is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kursdorf Kursdorf]], a village ''in the middle of a major airport''. As in, between the two landing strips. Understandably, people are leaving and nobody is moving there.

* "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues," a 1972 top 10 hit for Danny O'Keefe about a young man living in a small, dying town somewhere in rural America and is depressed over his lonliness and that all his friends and everyone he cares for have moved away ... in the song, they've moved to "L.A." (Los Angeles).

Contrast EverytownAmerica, which it may once have been, or possibly BoomTown for that real RichesToRags story.

* Speaking of former capitals. Right in the middle of TheSeventies, for purely political reasons, [[UsefulNotes/{{Poland}} Polish]] [[CommieLand People's Republic]], completely changed its administrative division, going from 17 to ''49'' voivodeships.[[note]](basic unit of administrative division, think provinces or states)[[/note]] Suddenly a lot of provincial towns and small cities were elevated to the position of region's capital and gained central investments, mostly into pompous infrastructure. After the fall of communism marely 14 years later, two-step reform was initiated and in 1999, the country was reorganised back into 16 voivodeships. As for the remaining 33 former capitals, most suffered massive population outflow, dwindling their already small population, while the former seats of administration are at best rented out for office spaces - in most cases they are just boarded up.

* Dubuque, Iowa, similar to Atlantic City, was this before Iowa legalized riverboat gambling. The revenue of the casinos has clearly gone into the city and it is now a popular tourist destination with its renovated historic sites, the nearby FieldOfDreams, and ski resort.

* Stain'd-by-the-Sea from ''Literature/AllTheWrongQuestions'' use to be a prosperous town thanks to ink harvesting industry. But eventually the number of ink creating octopi dwindled so the biggest company in town, Ink Inc., drained the surrounding oceans to get at the remaining octopi. This made things worse, it killed of the rest of the octopi, and screwed up a lot of other businesses that relied on tourism. By the time the series starts almost everyone has left to find better opportunities in the city.

* Ghost Port Kolobos in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyBraveExvius'' isn't quite a GhostTown yet despite its name, as it does have some permanent residents and a couple of shops, but large sections of the town are falling apart, and everyone makes it clear that the town currently doesn't have long before it's completely abandoned.

* Many rural communities in Japan that have no tourism to thrive on suffered from heavy population loss. This is mostly from the combination of closing of industries, young adults migrating to major cities for career, education, and cultural opportunities, and low birth rates leaving mostly the elder population.
