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.
im afraid you will likely forever have to defend your city against outdated thoughts like these, brodie. ive been down in that area many times over the several years and can also attest to the remarkable transformation. but i would suggest rather than trying to prove to others that they are uninformed, keep it your little secret and enjoy it.
