Re: Detroit IRL looks like it would be in The Last of Us, doesn't it?

Jul 20, 2013

I've always loved how nature takes abandoned buildings back. 

 

It's always interested me and I would love to see more about the world and seeing things and less fight.

 

I just think it would be amazing since the world is already beatiful, focusing on it even more would take my money right out of my wallet..

Trust me, I was downtown, right at the renaissance center. The place was deserted as hell. But once again I was a kid back then and haven't been there much since. I've been around the casinos though (not recently) and those areas looked very bleak too.  The only area I remember as being packed was greektown. I'm not trying to offend you, but Detroit isn't considered an abandoned city for no reason. 

 

A real sign not photoshopped. lol!

It's becoming pretty apparent that you don't live in Detroit, or you've never been down town. Ferndale, Hazel Park and Wayne aren't Detroit, just so you know. I can't stand when people claim they live in the D but actually reside in one of the little suburbs outside of the city and talk **bleep** about how bad they have it. That sign is photoshopped, by the way... I know Woodward Avenue like the back of my hand, that sign is NOT there and never has been.

That's the real sign, it's pretty obvious that you're not actually from the city.

Some of the old buildings have vines growing all the way to the top of them, sometimes three or more stories up. It's pretty cool to see in person if you're a fan of nature.

LOL!! a poser? Who on earth would want to be a poser by claiming they live in Detroit? :smileyvery-happy: I want to get out of here and i sure as hell would never pretend I live here. If anything I would tell people I'm from another city if I can get away with it.  As for the sign, I haven't seen the sign with my own eyes, I will admit that so I won't dispute yours, even though it's a stock photo, lol. I do know that warnings like this is done by the police department and not the government et al so who knows.

 

But I guess this is fake too

Anyway, I don't care if you love Detroit and wish to glorify this f*cked up place. Everyone can see the problems here and you aren't fooling anyone.

 

btw. to clear it up even more for you. No I don't live in the suburbs. I wouldn't be complaining if I did. I probaly wouldn't have to listen to morons shooting at night if I did.

Wow, a lot of Detroit-bashing lately, here and on the news haha!

Detroit would probably be one of my last choices of a place to live considering several facts which cannot be disputed; the city is broke (and just got denied by a Michigan circuit court when they attempted to file bankruptcy, lol), the crime rate has been historically high - I think Detroit probably has more "Murder Capital of the Year" awards (if you could call them that) than they do World Series Pennants or Superbowl wins, although it's not a terrible sports city anymore - and the weather sucks too!

IMO that's three strikes that would send me in the direction of Boston, New York, San Francisco, or my personal favorite, Santa Barbara.

But hey, circumstances beyond our control often dictate where we end up - I'm stuck in Portland, Maine right now which would certainly not be my top choice of residence, especially having moved here from Santa Barbara! Still, no need to get heated over this - there's sights to see and fun things to do in every city, including Detroit of course. I'm sure there's plenty of people who love Detroit, and I can't blame them for loving their hometown, as a matter of fact I think it's admirable to stick by it in hard times! I think it's kinda sad that what used to be a thriving, important American city is being abandoned by so many...

 

I could easily imagine my hometown of Boston going the same route things had turned out differently. EDIT - Now to think of it, I HAVE found out what Boston might be like if things go badly!

You should never feel bad for something you can't spell, it usually means you don't know anything about it.
