    Amazing!!! Clean sidewalks, no broken windows, men in jackets wearing straw hats.

    I swear to God you could eat off those sidewalks in 1917. It's amazing how we have regressed in 100 years.

    this bums me the fuck out.
    Was born at Sinai Hospital, lived Near Fankel Ave for the first part of my life.

    A sign in the road that tells you that "Chocolate" cities lead to mass corruption and mass exodus of earners.

    It would be perfect if it weren't for all the lousy J walkers.

    More like a combination of one-industry reliance and corrupt Democrats.

    You also notice no horse and buggies on the street. Detroit being the American birthplace of the automobile at that time are years ahead of other cities.

    In all fairness, it's still a work in progress. But they've made giant strides in the last 100 years.

    If Coleman Young hadn't started fucking shit up and stopped trying to put his hand in industries pocket, most of these companies wouldn't have left.

    Don't forget NAFTA finishing off what was left of Detroit, to ensure that the very last bit of blood was drained out of a once beautiful city.

    I think it's fair to say that FOO Kwame Kilpatrick was the last nail in the coffin.
