The most awesomest place in America. Alot of people put it down because, well, the news.
Best hockey team. Best basketball team. Slowly going football team.

People say all of Detroit is ghetto, Detroit has nice areas also, such as Highland Park. Lived in detroit for 13+ years. Also, the best DOWNTOWN ever!
Yes, parts of Detroit are ghetto but there are some cool and nice parts.
P2: Ugh, I'm going down to Detroit to see my grandmother.
P1: Have you ever been down there before?
P2: No, I heard the 'D' has some high crime rates, I heard it on the news, I don't wanna die today!
P1: DON'T TALK ABOUT IT THEN IF YOU HAVENT SET A FOOT IN DETROIT, Or at least of 9 mile radius of Detroit
P2: -.-, It might not be so bad after all, I'll just get some Faygo while I'm down there.

Amazing city, typically wrongly defined by stereotypes. It has it's pros, and it's cons, but it's never as bad as people say.
Place where anyone in Michigan claims to be from. You can ask someone from Kalamazoo or Cheboygan where they're from, and they'll say Detroit.
Detroit has a bad rep, thanks to stereotypes.

Detroit has had some downfalls, but that is because the auto companies were doing poorly. What happened to Detroit could happen to any large city.
As for the crime, look at any other city-New York, Chicago and L.A. are worse. There are not many people living in Detroit anymore, because they all live in suburbs.

Also, Detroit has some great fancy restaurants, a great river view, and architecture. Motown (Supremes, Temptations, etc.) and the beginnings of rock-and-roll started here.
Motown
Detroit

Detroit is the bestiest city ever! All you who say its bad just don't know it! Stop listening to rumors and stuff cause it sucks when you meet someone from another state and they say "where are you from?" you say "detroit" and they look scared and walk away!! I Love it here!! I'm never leaving and if you don't like that than say away from me!! We Rock the world!
Who doesn't love detroit? You? I hate you then.
