TIME Magazine Bought A House In Detroit
That’s right people, TIME Magazine bought a house in Detroit. Not in the suburbs, but within the city limits. Why? Well, apparently they are going to have a bunch of journalists living in the house for a year and report on the city. I don’t know exactly where this house is, but from the pictures it looks pretty nice. They bought it for $99k, which means it’s GOTTA be somewhere nice, considering the average home price is around $7,000-$18,000 ( I keep hearing varying numbers, hard to know which figures are correct). Here’s a pic of the house below:
See what I mean? A house like this is a rarity in Detroit. To take in the full effect you’d think they would have chosen a house in a bit more, um, “shitty” neighborhood. Otherwise, what’s the point? Might as well have bought a house in the ‘burbs!
To the brave journalists at TIME, try not to get killed. Godspeed…
