Let me start by saying Detroit is amazing. For anyone who loved and appreciated movies like Logan's Run or 12 Monkey's, Detroit has that post apocalyptic flavor. I felt as if transported into the future of western civilization, and it look's good!
Urban agriculture spreads across what was once tightly packed suburbs. Community art projects sprout from the ashes of burned out neighborhoods. I felt a sense of hope and peace after visiting Detroit that I haven't felt before.
It's going to be alright. When times seem impossible people come together to help each other and nature grows back.
