In before some jagoff recommends bulldozing/nuking Detroit.
 
2013-09-19 08:36:39 AM  
The aquarium is still beautiful...so sad to see the demise of the city :(
 
2013-09-19 08:36:53 AM  
The whole city should be road gradered/JDAMed.

Someone must get an email alert whenever this same exact article is updated.

At this stage is there any photographer who *hasn't* documented Detroit's demise?
 
2013-09-19 08:42:29 AM  
I recommend bulldozing/nuking Detroit. Just to be sure.

Heading there to St Andrew's to see Devil makes three next month. The D still hosts way better concerts than my neck of the woods.

Tragic.

USA! USA!

We are truly exceptional!

THIS

Seriously, go photograph something else, better yet, do the whole slidey thing with the photo of the passed glory slides to the photo of the expected demise.

Oh..just to be sure...better  bulldoze/nuke Detroit.

Right up till it collapses, racking up a death toll you usually only hear about in third-world countries.

Honestly, all the buildings in Detroit look like someone's partied in them a little too hard already.

I agree with you. What a shiathole. Full of jagoffs, too.
 
2013-09-19 09:03:59 AM  
I never get tired of these urban decay photos.
Oddly enough with all the bulldozing efforts parts of Detroit city look way less scary & much more hopeful than back in the 80s & 90s.
 
2013-09-19 09:08:28 AM  
Here.  I'll condense it for you.   The only one photo of Detroit's demise that matters:

Oh, it's this thread again. The Daily Fail puts these articles up monthly...and they usually get greenlit here.

This is the city of Henry Ford, so this is all revenge against him.
 
2013-09-19 09:17:31 AM  
What, you mean "get whitey" isn't a good city revitalization strategy?

Well, if DOES make sure that 500,000 people NEVER vote republican again.

what about it?  I looked at it on google maps, what should I be seeing?
 
2013-09-19 09:37:44 AM  
That's some fine scenery gorn.
 
2013-09-19 09:43:00 AM  
Oh look. It's these pictures again.

/see you again in a month or two
 
2013-09-19 09:53:32 AM  
At this point Detroit has been withering away for so long you could take pictures of the picture takers withering away.
 
2013-09-19 09:56:36 AM  
This is why you can't give brown people nice things.

From Wikipedia: "Politically, the city consistently supports the Democrat party in state, local and national elections. According to a study released by the Bay Area Center for Voting Research, Detroit is the most "liberal" large city in America"

No


Not the most convincing rebuttal, it has to be said
 
2013-09-19 10:39:21 AM  
At least these seem to be mostly different pictures then the usual ones green lite from the Daily Fail.

The aquarium looks like it was just recently closed. Looks like you could make some money stripping out the old fixtures in some of these places.

How about: I shudder to think of running sound in that place...

Yep. Winning!

Anyone else think it would be fun to play wacky basket ball here? With rollerskates.

How did the camera not get stolen and the photographers body not get dumped in the backyard of a crack house?

This.  It's like a Fark bi-monthly greenlight.

I would love to skateboard through that part of the city.
 
2013-09-19 11:39:13 AM  
Why does Detroit let so many buildings fall into disrepair?  If I lived there I would be really upset and write a letter to the Mayor.

I always chuckle that after 50+ years of democrat rule its always someone else's fault the city rotted away.

/Hard to believe that The D was once called "The Paris of the West."

As far as I know the aquarium reopened and remains open.  But I don't live anywhere near Detroit (used to though).

I remember driving by the old Highland Park police station when it was still being used.  It was a wreck then and really gave you that war zone feeling.
