The pictures depict an effective Vandalism Prevention Program in action.
Who would attempt to further damage those buildings?
Looks like Warsaw at the end of WWII.
Those were once the dream homes of the Depression/World War II generation.
Saved for, cared for, and paid for. The way real Americans behave.
I can bet some of those buildings were once very elegant.
I’m sure these homes were once lovely and lived in by families going to work every day, raising their children and doing all they should to live their daily lives. How sad that they look like they look today.
I have heard reports that you could find homes there for as little as a hundred dollars. It was hard to believe, but now I look at those photos, and I got to ask, That much?
Really saddening. Just look at the building on the upper left, a magnificent house when it was built and for many years after. It didn’t even receive the dignity of being parted out.
But a city is not just buildings, it’s also people and the decay starts with them. By the time the buildings start to fall it’s far too late.
Hey, those pictures remind me, I just saw The Hurt Locker yesterday. There’s a touch more grass, and more wood construction, but other than that...
I see detroit as a microcosm of “Atlas Shrugged”.
lost city of detroid.
What’s really sad is that is the same type of area where you could park your car and walk to Tiger Stadium.
Without fear and suspicion.
