Detroit has been known for violence, despair, abandonment, drugs, and a failing economy for years. It hasn’t really been the best place to hang out, and even though it’s turning around, it’s easy for us locals to see what it has to offer and forget to ever return.
Detroit is constantly changing. We forget that. And currently, it’s a city filled with opportunities, especially for young people. The average college graduate with a full-time job can afford to buy a home, or rent a fancy apartment in the city. Detroit is a place to open a new business, hang out with friends, and it’s constantly changing for the better.
