Yeah you're right, I thought about that after posting. Still, it's ironic given then state of the city now.

It's rather shocking that a major downtown like Detroit only has the same amount of people as Mississauga, Ontario, a suburb next to Toronto.

Detroit has been in decline since Obama was in grade school. One might consider who has been promoting the outsourcing of industries overseas for the last several decades.

No kidding. My dad worked in Detroit during Nixon. The D is probably far better than it was then, they had to convoy out of downtown if they worked late.

Detroit is a victim of forces way beyond republicans and democrats.

I work in Detroit everyday. They usually only show you the family friendly neighborhoods.

Good movie to watch that show some truth about the city is BURN. Some of the stuff you see in the movie will shock you, to think their could be places like this in America. Filmed over the coarse of a year, its a documentary that follows the Detroit fire department around and shows the actual state of the city and how some residents treat it.

1.3 people a day get murdered in Detroit, some streets the police will not even go down. They keep the city up the best they can, the rest looks like a third world country.

I heard that only 40% of the street lights work in Detroit.

They also sold the Pontiac Silverdome for $600,000. Finally, stadiums are coming down to reasonable price levels.

I remember reading about the Silverdome being sold for pennies. it cost almost $60 million to build and ended up selling for just about 1% of that cost lol. That's nuts

60% work, 40% don't. An amusing figure, although most that don't work are in and around abandoned neighborhoods and districts. A scarier stat is that it takes police an average of 58 minutes to respond to a call, if its an area they'll even go into. Crime is pretty close to legal in the surrounding areas of downtown.

Detroit is actually very similar to an old timey prospector town, like the ones that were all over the southwest, just on a larger scale. Take away the jobs = town death. It's just more dramatic because of all the people stuck there.
