I remember reading about crime rate going up and people moving away from Detroit. I hope things let up. American cities have such impressive buildings.

Detroit is so amazing and it deserves a renaissance with all that glorious early 20th century architecture bravo!

I really like this kind of architecture: early to mid-20th century neo-gothic, art deco etc. U.S. architecture of this period is really stunning.

This thread makes a change from some of the articles and photos that appear in the online press that concentrate solely on the run-down aspects of Detroit. Not to say that Detroit doesn't have its problems, but if they were to be believed the city is nothing but a crumbling shell, whereas these photos show that it isn't all like that (thankfully).

What is that monument for? It appears to have some kind of medieval warrior on the top of it!?

Summer Detroit looks great!
By the way, it should be banned to drive Hyundai or Toyota in this city
