I hope it makes a comeback one day.
The new Wilderness.
Seems one place no one wants to be
Wasn't the city's demise due in large part to the spread of the car manufacturing industry? At one time I think a large # of America's cars were manufactured in Detroit...but now a lot of our cars come from overseas, right? I've always assumed that, but I could be wrong.
One of the problems, at least for their economy. All the big American automotive makers are still in Michigan but there's a lot more car companies out there. Even some that aren't American still make their cars in the United States. BMW and their partners actually produces a lot of cars right here in the Greenville-Spartanburg South Carolina area.
my city also declined when it fell into Serbian hands after the WW1. Our famous leader Tito was afraid of the Stalin's influence in Hungary so he didn't want to develop our frontier city more.
In years past, I always associated Detroit with cars.
I was going to say the say the same. I have always associated Detroit to car industry. Kisses:)
It's amazing that a major US city can lose 25% of it's population in a decade...wow
Really sad - 25% of it's population!
It's a city in strong need of a rebirth.
Very, very sad.I bet the British are glad they weren't able to keep it after the War of 1812.
In desperate need of rebuilding

Really sad Adam! Still.I remember Detroit in good times!
Benton Harbor looks a lot like Detroit too. Seems like a lot of MI is going to the dumps!
True and it is very sad :/
