Only 2 weeks until Christmas, and for me, that means a trip back to Detroit to see friends and family for the first time in 2 years. That also means that I will be filing A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4, and I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions for the next film. One thing I will NOT be doing is filming the “nice” areas of Detroit, so you can just forget about that right now… it’s called A Tour Of Detroit’s GHETTO for a reason. I would think that the title would give that away, but some are not so quick to grasp the concept.
Now that we have that out of the way, I am open to suggestions as to certain things you would like to see in part 4. If you know of a particularly ghetto area, street, building, etc, I want to know about it.
Accompanying part 4 will be a playable google earth tour that will take you down every street that I drive down so that you can see exactly where I have been. This should be a pretty cool feature, I have been fooling around with it for a while now and I think you will like it.
Shoot me a comment if you would like to see something in particular this time around.
Here are some more videos that show the ghetto neighborhoods of Detroit. These are not my videos, these are mine: Detroit Ghetto Videos. Many of the Detroit ghetto videos I have seen on youtube have some of my footage in them, apparently people just splice it into theirs without giving me any credit. Oh well. These are just a few that are worth watching, despite some shitty rap music for the audio tracks on a few of them.
My original “A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto” video just hit 500k views! Thank you to all those who support me, and I want to let you all know that I will be working on Part 4 very soon, so check back often! I will be filming another Detroit ghetto video this winter, so look for it sometime early 2010. Detroit’s ghetto is so vast, I could probably film 20 more of these videos and still not run out of new and original footage.
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!
