Detroit in photos

And some thoughts:

The train station is massive and vacant; imagine in NYC if Grand Central and Met Life behind it were both completely abandoned, windows out, wind and birds passing through. . . .

But these buildings are different. Some of them are at least 50 years old, some are grand and elegant, and they tend to look as if everyone just left one day, walked out (kicked out more likely) and now the wind blows through the glassless windows. . . .

Just outside this establishment they were cleaning up remnants of sets for Transformers 3, which were scattered over a 4 block area: bits of blown up street (made of Styrofoam), burnt out cars and smashed signage. A slightly more extreme version of Detroit.
