Known as the "Murder City." Previously known as the "Motor City."
Years ago, Detroit used to be a booming town with automotive factories all around it. Detroit was nick named, the "Motor" City. Now, there are maybe but a few plants that are operating & still building cars. The murder rate in Detroit is so much higher & now it is known as the "Murder" City.
