Now if someone asks me where to film a post-apocalyptic zombie movie, I'll have a well thought-out answer.

My mom's from Detroit. It's really sad to hear her talk about it in the 60s and 70s, compared to what it's become today.
Bored
Scary.

Also: what the fuck is with the guy's need to look at boats?
Phil
IT'S A SUBTLE COMMENTARY ON HOW OPULENCE USED TO BE PART OF THE DETROIT LIFESTYLE, BUT THE BOATS BEING IN SUCH DISREPAIR ARE A STARK CONTRAST TO THE PLEASURE THEIR FORM PROMISES.
THE CONDITION OF THE BOATS REFLECT ON THE SPIRIT OF THE CITY.

Also, notice how most of the boats are on the ground. All of the trailers have been snatched.

Phil
THIS INDICATES THAT WHILE THE CITY SEEKS RELIEF FROM IT'S DREARY EXISTENCE, IT HAS NOT THE MEANS TO REACH THIS GOAL, MUCH LIKE THE BOAT CANNOT BE WHEELED OUT TO THE LAKE ANY LONGER

There are a lot of dead boat owners, I imagine.

C. Eloi Marx
Ah, The Renaissance City in all it's splendour and glory.

And why the fuck are there so many abandoned boats.
SteamPoweredKleenex
Well, after the economy collapsed, there wasn't enough money to keep "The Fabled Canals of Detroit" running, and the pumps eventually clogged, leaving all the boats high and dry.

Is this the demo for Fallout 4 or Left 4 Dead 3?

You can throw in some STALKER too. God how depressing.

YEAH GUYS I TOOK THREE LEVELS IN GRINDING POVERTY AND FOUR IN FAILED EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM.

I REALLY DON'T THINK I'M GOING TO MAKE IT OUT OF THE STARTING NEIGHBORHOOD.

VoilaIntruder
If there isn't a video game analogous to what I'm seeing I can't process it.

Dying leaves hope for a future. There are many much dirtier, more terrible, cities on Earth that will continue to exist forever with no chance of ever improving.
VoilaIntruder
We've all seen Robocop.

kennydra
does this really count as a ghetto? i didn't watch most of it but from the couple minutes i did see it seems as if its just mostly abandoned. the ghettos i'm familiar with are almost this shitty but then also filled with dirty children and sad eyed old people.

Way to go, 'merica!

Oh, and the boats are metaphors. Definitely metaphors.

Detroit is basically a case study for an introductory class in urban planning: some cities fall apart when you cram 3 million people in a space designed for 600,000, but the opposite is just as bad, if not worse.

The really sad thing is maybe a 0 million investment from the federal government as eminent domain could go a long way to turning the city around; just buy up all these slums and demolish them. Get people close enough together that the city can actually afford to provide them baseline services with the tax base it has, and you'd see a new dawn for Detroit. But, once again, the city's too black for people to actually see potential.

Also, this video needs a Kwame Kilpatrick highlight reel to really be complete.
Pacobird
Also, I have to defend my city a little bit; you aren't seeing downtown here, which isn't any more dangerous or less fun to visit than any other major city's downtown.

Redlof
Well we can't even get people to agree to pay taxes for their own cities at this point so don't set the bar too high.

UmbilicalFiend
speaking of hanging out downtown, if you haven't been to D'Mongo's yet you are missing out waaaaay hard

Hooper_X
Well, did he go to the Rhino or not?
rustedmutt
No, son. The Rhino's just...sleeping right now.

Hooper_X
To be fair, if it's a bar or strip club or something, he WAS there in what appeared to be late morning or early afternoon. I severely doubt it was regular business hours.

DO NOT CRUSH MY DREAMS OF THE RHINO.

The horrors of living in a state run by unions.
kingarthur
Fuck you, you ignorant fuck. If I didn't know for a fact you were trolling, I'd slap you.

tmavomodry
Yes the unions sent all those jobs to Mexico and China.

Pacobird
It always strikes me as funny when consrvatives blame the unions for Detroit, because they could be making the Holy Grail conservative argument in that Detroit drove its entire tax base out of the city through oppressive property taxes for very little return, and it'd be a lot closer to the truth.

Cena_mark
Pacobird: That's true too. But I hate unions and feel they're too blame for a lot of problems. They scare off business. When the Koreans and Japanese started making cars in the U.S. where did they go? They went to right to work states, where they wouldn't be harassed by union goons. "Oh those poor people in the KIA plant working for 2 cents an hour, if only they had a union."

Mike Tyson?!
Yes, we should be happy when the ruling class allows us to eat the scraps they give up.

kingarthur
Right to work states like Mississippi, which we all know has a wonderful record of human rights when it comes to employment.

Vicious
"the ruling class."
