    Approaching the derelict shell of downtown Detroit, we see full-grown trees sprouting from the tops of deserted skyscrapers. In their shadows, the glazed eyes of the street zombies slide into view, stumbling in front of the car. Our excitement at driving into what feels like a man-made hurricane Katrina is matched only by sheer disbelief that what was once the fourth-largest city in the US could actually be in the process of disappearing from the face of the earth. The statistics are staggering 40sq miles of the 139sq mile inner city have already been reclaimed by nature.

    Some beautiful buildings there! I am amazed that the libraries still have books in them

    I posted a couple of similar links last year http://www.midlandsheritage.co.uk/lo...1-detroit.html (Detroit)

    I'd LOVE to go check Detroit out but it's not somewhere I'd wander round on my own
