I frequent downtown for concerts at the Fox and Fillmore Theatre's, Greektown has some amazing restraunts(Pegasus, Fishbones). Yes, white flight to the suburbs and the wholesale dimantling of the automotive manufacturing sector have clearly taken a huge toll on the city, as well as having a small and unreliable tax base, but Mr. I has managed to turn downtown around with the money his family has invested in infrastructure and entertainment. With the resurgence of an innovative and sustainable auto industry, this city could make it's comeback.
I agree with everything here. I actually enjoy Downtown Detroit a lot. I think it has awesome potential for redevelopment because it already has a strong existing core of entertainment.
