A Very Sad Story

Would you move to Detroit if the city gave you a free house?

The continual shift, change, and decline of the American economy has given rise to urban wastelands of abandoned inner city homes. Virtually every major urban center in the USA has swaths of urban decay as pictured to some degree... Detroit, Cleveland, Baltimore, Boston, Philadelphia, Minneapolis - St. Paul, Chicago, Atlanta... The list goes ever on. Many of the images are utterly heartbreaking, these magnificent homes that have stood tall and proud for well over a hundred years, now left to decay and fall into ruin.
