The impression that I get is that Detroit has a predominantly black population?

Detroit city proper has indeed a mostly black population (in a 4:1 ratio, black:white).
The ratio is almost reversed if you consider the entire metro Detroit.

Detroit reminds me of Chicago - although I've never been to either. I've flown over Chicago ,and been to O'Hare airport - on route to San Francisco. Chicago looks phenomenal.

Detroit city proper cannot realistically compare with Chicago these days
Still, I would say Detroit has better suburbs.

Woodward Avenue cuts the city in half:


medical campus (and Ford field in the background)


a century old industrial remains - once at the edge of the city, now part of the downtown:

Everything on this page is within the city of Detroit itself.

Thanks for the great photos, Dondonel.

Thank you guys

the distance from midtown to downtown on Woodward Ave:


and a close-up - Woodward Ave goes north-south and this is the southward direction, to Canada
that's right, Detroit is one of the few places in US where Canada is to the south:


the medical campus at night


Old Main and the casino in the background:
