While browsing the internet we came across a couple of articles about Detroit that are worth a read over on CNN.com. In light of all the negative news that seems to permeate the national media, these take a look at a cross section of residents and entrepreneurs who love The Big D, The Motor City, Motown, Hockeytown, The-D, The 3-1-3, Rock City and most historical and relevant to Detroit’s modern day resurgence The Great Arsenal of Democracy. Whatever you want to call it we call it a city with great history and a bright future.
Detroit residents always get asked why they stay. 13 locals answer that question – and reveal their favorite treasures of the Motor City.
Local business owners are teaming up to draw shoppers and rebuild Detroit, one business at a time.

Tryin’ to make these last few days of this 365 as intense as possible. I still say Detroit is home to me, no matter what. There STILL remain some good areas in Detroit that most do NOT know about to this day! Like most of us who are from the 313, I am DETERMINED to prove the naysayers-you know who you are-wrong!
BTW, some of these came various cameras (phones included) that I’ve used over the course of time (apparently).
