Even the 3 little white kids that rarely see any African-Americans new enough to keep their mouths shut... It was a very quick breakfast...
You came for the super cross, not because the city is a great place to visit...and the Detroit zoo isn't in Detroit, it's in royal oak

No you didn't. You cannot dispute the fact that Detroit sucks, it's not worth saving, and the only people that think its fun haven't been to a real city

I have money to travel, I have been to Chicago 4 times, Vegas once. I come to Detroit to be a tourist when I don't come there for work. It does have promise. Like Reico mentioned its not gonna get fixed overnight. There is tons to do in Detroit and see also. The Heidelberg project has zero crime since its a high traffic area. Eastern market, you could take all those abandoned buildings and make a tour out of them. All that history. There is an eastern market tour already in place that has a bar that is something like 100yrs old.
I agree with the statement also that city management needs to get shit canned. Detroit has always had a tough image in films. It is. I try and get to Detroit whenever I can even if its only passing through.

Reiko, you live in a dream world. Until the citizens of detroit want to turn the city around it will remain a shit hole. Get over it.

No, you think Detroit is great city with lots to offer, history and current environment suggest that it doesn't. No real bars or nightlife district. No real shopping to speak of. No real area with good resteruants. There are a couple down there but that is all you are going to get. You cannot go downtown, spend an entire day and have fun. Unless you count bellying up at one bar and getting pissed
