Detroit: The Ruins.

Recommended Posts

It wasn't portrayed too favorably in the opening sequence to "Beverly Hills Cop" (the first one, 1984).

All I can think of is the armies of architects and engineers that had to draw up these intricate masonry buildings and plan grand boulevards, only for them to be part of a forgotten wasteland. And no insult to those of you who live in its suburbs -- I have seen some of the nice suburbs outside of the Detroit city limits.

Amazing work. There is a sort of harrowing quality to these photographs. You are seeing a once mighty city that is now no more than a former shell of itself. The fourth image in the set illustrates it so well; it almost makes you think of the ruins of Chernobyl/Pripyat, Ukraine rather than a landmark city in America.

My GF keeps wanting to move to Detroit and try to start a great revitalization.

She seems to think that better days are right around the corner for the city.

I however believe that it's a lost cause for it's seems that even God hates Detroit.

Like with most of my opinions and predictions, I pray that I'm wrong.
