In terms of cities as women, Detroit is compared to the flashier, sexier, crunchier, trendier cities/women, and often serve to inflate the self esteem of cities who actually aren 't as awesome as they think they are, or are having problems and want someone to make them feel prettier. Some of her worst enemies are actually her cousins (the Detroit suburbs) who think she is an embaressing relative, and think they know what is best for her, but bad mouth her and get in her way. Detroit has problems, but thats not all there is to her. The auto industry, a boyfriend, has been part of her best and worst times.
Los Angeles: Pssst..have you seen Detroit lately? I feel so bad for her. EVERYONE says her days are numbered.
New York: I know. I feel bad sometimes, because we are so awesome and successful. Detroit just doesn't know whats good for her. She needs to get her priorities straight. Her schools are a mess.
Portland: Poor Detroit. So unenlightened. She likes abusive men. They should look into local foods, or a market where you can buy fresh food. Plus they need diversity.
Seattle: Oh, I know! Too bad they don't live near water and Canada like us. But they aren't as progressive as us.
Westland (suburb): God cousin Detroit is so embaressing. I just party at her place then get going back.
Birmingham: Its a shame what happened to my cousin Detroit. She should have better shopping. But everyone just wants to come shopping with me.
Eastpointe: I try not to let anyone know about my cousin, Detroit. I really am closer to my cousin, Grosse Pointe. Oh yeah, I used to be East Detroit. We're sooo fancy here.
1.A city that a bunch of people talk and complain about but without ever stepping inside the city limits or even coming within 50 miles of its border.
2.Contrary to popular belief, there are nice parts, but perpetuating stereotypes is better than talking about the good that resides there, huh?
3.Where everyone who's from Michigan says they're from when somebody asks them where they live.
4.Best water in the world.
1. Hey, I haven't been to Detroit, let along Michigan, but I heard something on the radio about the crime, so that makes me the official expert, tee-hee.
2.Rosedale Park, University District, etc...all great living areas.
3.Random Person 1: Where are you from?
Random Person 1: Where?
4.Have you ever had Detroit water?
A city with the highest single parent population in the country.

On an average, 8 out of every 10 women in Detroit between 18-29 has at least one child, 80% out of wedlock.
The only place in America where people love hockey just as much as Canadians do.
The Detroit Redwings will rock your socks off.
A really awesome city that is stereotyped entirely way too much. Sure it is mostly black and has a large industrial landscape, but so what? None of those two are necessarily bad things. I love black people; they are awesome, and I personally love the industrial architecture
. In addition, it is one of the birthplaces of modern rock and rap, and has one of the most kick-ass basketball teams: The Detroit Pistons. The Detroit Tigers
are cool, too.
Detroit is a kickass city with one of the best skylines ever.
