city in decay

My husband sent me a link this morning to the Parisian photographers Marchand and Meffre's photos of "The Ruins of Detroit." The photos are pretty incredible. Looking at them, you would expect that the entire city of Detroit has been abandoned and that everyone just stood up together and left decades ago.

More photos and pertinent information on their website.


  1. James and I went through a phase where we were obsessed with Detroit! You should check out the prices on for the huge old mansions near lake michigan, i think the neighborhood is indian point (?). There are some places that are in complete decay but used to be fancy pants gated communities. So, what if you bought a huge beautiful old home (owned by one of the guys who originally worked at Ford or something) for 20k, got some friends to do the same in your neighborhood, and then started your own New Detroit?! :)

  2. Is that where the White Stripes dude has a mansion? That would be pretty much awesome.
