They're not pretty to look at. But they're spectacular to photograph. Some of Detroit's most haunting, abandoned houses await demolition. But here they stand, within a two-minute drive of Woodward Avenue, at the heart of city's cultural center, home of the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Science Center, the Wright Museum of African American History, the College of Creative Studies, the Detroit Public Library, the Detroit Historical Museum, Wayne State U and the Detroit Medical Center.
Look at it this way: what other city in America has more open space available and more potential for economic redevelopment and revitalization?
Hey, Happy Halloween, and thanks for driving by.
