It's hard to imagine that Detroit has so many abandoned buildings. It looks like a war has been fought in the city and everyone just grabbed what they could and fled town.
Most of us could simply drive by a place like this and never even think twice about them. They remain as harsh reminders to how poorly run the city is. We live in a society where everything is disposable.
These abandoned buildings are left hollow and wasted. Although they might be interesting to explore - they are really just sad reminders to everyone driving by of how run down their city is becoming.
According to http://www.statestats.com/cit07pop.htm Detroit is statistically the #1 most dangerous city (with a population over 500,000). The overall standings put Detroit as the #2 most dangerous falling second to St. Louis.
Places shown in the video below are more symbolic that we realize - an abandoned Police Department Building . . .
