Modern Ruins Of Detroit. It Makes You Think...

We know what Detroit is going through, and I'm betting deep down most of us wonder, "This could have been Buffalo." or "Could this be Buffalo?"  There are about 80,000+ empty buildings in Detroit.  A number that seems impossible to fathom, but it's true.

The Weather Channel's Travel division has posted a Modern Ruins Of Detroit pictorial, and as you click through, notice how many similiarities there are to Buffalo.  The United Artists Theatre is what Shea's may have looked like without rescue in the late 70's.  The empty run down auto manufacturing buildings are much like the Lackawanna Steel Mills.  Several other buildings remind us of the Guaranty Building or Ellicott Square downtown. 

This will make you very proud of the way we have preserved and used our architecture in Buffalo.  We did something another city was unable to.  Have fun clicking through, but in a way, it's very disturbing.  Looks like the movie set from Escape From New York, Detroit style.
