Very nice, hudkina, Detroit rocks! I always wanted to try that Mario's Restaurant, heard good things about it.

The abandoned forfeiture, wealth stuffy, grass on the sidewalks and roads, iron fencings that delimit the houses of the poor ones like worse the Las Vegas, but altogether the Motown (where for a long time Ford and competition has moved the factories elsewhere, in ill-famed and the a lot extolled “poor” Bible Belt) does not end to fascinate and would want much living to me them, in the not mawkish authentication and native land of Eminem. Michigancool!

At one point Detroit had the highest home-ownership rate in the U.S. The drive for the American Dream is what built the city, but sadly the American Dream also helped destroy much of the city.

"Probably the least favourite city that I've visited - it's got it's nice bits though; especially the houses."

Far from my least favorite US city. I find Detroit fascinating and many US cities would be blessed to have even what is left of Detroit's architectural stock.
