Today's Slum picture is from 1935, and shows a decaying area of Washington DC.
I was curious if anyone has been to Detroit recently. I have heard it has become almost a wasteland with half the street lights and traffic lights not working. It is hard to tell what is going on by looking at pictures on the internet, because you cannot get a perspective on how widespread the rot is. I mean, you could just be taking lots of pictures of a couple of blocks in bad shape. Does anyone live nearby that could shed light on the present state of decay in Detroit?
