04/28/10 132 W - + 6 - 12 Virtually Exploring Detroit


Talk about a place for urban exploration! Based on Google findings, the city is a magnificent ghost town in many places. And what sounds like the only city outside of Chicago or New York for notable pre-Depression architecture. Quite a few former firehouses, and many dating a century or more in age. Most of the active houses appear to be historic, and in the 100 year old range. Some links are below for your midweek enjoyment, for those inclined to virtually explore. Might have to alter my travel plans, to spend more than a passing day around town!
