Hello everyone! When I posted my original “A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto” video on Youtube nearly 3 years ago, I had no idea it would be approaching half a million views as of today. In comparison to other videos on Youtube, it’s really not that impressive, but given the subject matter, I am surprised so many people have found it as interesting as I have.
It’s a touchy subject to some, but for many it’s an eye opener… even to lifelong residents residing only a few miles away…many do not realize the extent of Detroit’s, um, “situation”. I do not claim to be an expert on the city by any means. I am just a regular guy who grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, who was shocked that such a place existed only 5 miles from home, and decided to film it.
First and foremost, here are my 3 original videos featuring the ghetto of Detroit:
The first video was filmed in 2002 and 2003, before I moved to Florida in 2004. Now, my only opportunities to film more Detroit videos come when I visit my friends and family in the Detroit area for vacation, whenever that happens to be (not nearly often enough). Part 2 was filmed in December 2006, and part 3 in December 2007. As of right now it appears that I will be going to Detroit for Christmas this year, and there is a very good chance that I will film part 4, so be on the lookout for that!
