Unconventional Tours of an Urban Landscape

The city of Detroit, Michigan has become a magnet for “urban explorers,” people who like to roam around the ruins of formerly occupied urban areas. They come, driven by curiosity, desire to photograph and document urban decay, or because deserted buildings are a suitable canvass for their art. The vandals also come, stealing anything of value that the former inhabitants left behind. This book, with over 200 photographs, is about exploring Detroit, its natural assets and beautiful architecture and its abandoned neighborhoods. The author takes you inside the graffiti-filled walls of abandoned factories and homes (in a city full of homeless people!), with directions for readers who might want to do some urban exploring. The book's "tours" take you to historic locations, exploring its history of segregation and unrest, as well as its history as the Motor City, a center of Industrial Age innovation, progress and prosperity. Founded in 1701 by French explorers, Detroit reached its population peak in the 1950s, following waves of immigrants from Europe and migrations of people from the South seeking work in the industrial North. Over many years of growth and prosperity, the city became home to numerous magnificent buildings and grand churches. Woodward Avenue, the main street in Detroit, is so full of beautiful, historic and architecturally significant buildings that it is the ONLY urban highway in the US to be officially designated as a “Scenic Byway.” Much of its glory is still there to see and enjoy. The narrative is liberally illustrated with OVER 200 PHOTOS and has been updated for 2016.
