That place is a dump, people are afraid to go there.

But honestly, you gotta go there, see it to understand that it's not what people say it is. I've been twice to Detroit, once on a 1day pitstop to Chichago, once to actually see the Wings play in Joe. May not be the best city i've visited so far (I'm in love with Boston tho), but it's far from being the worse.

And you can't compare Devils situation. Devils were blamed to have built an arena in ''ghetto'' while they had many other parts of the city more ''public friendly''. Detroit main problem is economy, not gangsters and wannabe thugs.

Hey, I've read news of tourist getting shot on Broadway in late afternoon...guess NYC is pretty dangerous aswell.
Here's the thing, if you go to Detroit itself it's a beautiful city, lots of a good-looking (deserted) buildings but it's really around it that it's like a setting for some Apocalyptic zombie movie.
