Except that you won't be able to find a "scary" picture of downtown Detroit, because the only thing "scary" about it is the name Detroit. And everyone who counts (ie. the people who live here) know this.
The crime and the burning buildings and the crack addicts are all in peripheral neighborhoods (especially on the east side or in the south). Those are the places anyone with a brain would be scared to go. Downtown Detroit is a business and entertainment district bounded by the river and midtown (which is basically a university campus with museums, the library and the symphony). It's mostly empty.
