We visited Detroit in 1990 & it looked pretty bad then. But that was just a preview for today, if this vid is any indication.

I remember spending a day in Hamtramck, a redeveloped-for-tourists section of downtown D. Interesting, but to get there, we drove through miles of bldg husks & blighted mostly empty neighborhoods. What people we saw had dead eyes. We kept hearing how revitalized the inner city was becoming, but to us with our Calif-eyes, it seems like the true definition of ghetto. First & only time in Detroit!

Maybe we should've paid better attn to our sneak preview.
