Few cities have seen the rise and fall that Detroit has. At its height, it was the fourth largest city in the U.S. with 1.85 million residents. Today there are less than 700,000. In 2013, the city declared bankruptcy, making it the largest municipal bankruptcy in history. There are an estimated 70,000 abandoned buildings, 31,000 empty homes, and 90,000 vacant lots in the Motor City. This is where Abandoned Detroit picks up the story. What became of these forgotten buildings? Have you ever wondered what lies within that old building as you drive past? Join us as we step foot inside these haunting and beautiful locations including: factories, schools, nursing homes, zoos, hospitals, houses, and many more. Featuring over 200 full-color photographs, you will witness the beauty that can be found in decay as we look at these buildings, many for the last time before they are lost forever to time or the wrecking ball. Abandoned Detroit not only takes you inside these lost places but tells the history of them and how they came to be abandoned.
