A Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4 Update

I just wanted to give everyone an update on the next Detroit ghetto video. I filmed it last week and got some great footage, and also tracked the route on my GPS which will hopefully (providing I am able to figure it out, editing KML files is new to me) be turned into a google earth tour so that you can see where exactly I went. I got some footage in the Packard plant as well as an abandoned high school, in addition to the usual residential devastation.

I really don’t know when I will be able to find the time and motivation to edit it all as I lost my mother on New Year’s Day, just hours before I was supposed to fly back home. It’s been an incredibly tough time for me this past week and to be honest, editing this video is not ranking real high on my list of priorities at the moment, I’m sure you all understand. I just wanted to say that it has been filmed and I will get it up here as soon as I can.

Forbes Magazone Calls Detroit "America’s Most Miserable City"

Another dismal statistic for Detroit. In 2008, Forbes Magazine has labeled Detroit the most miserable city in America, read about it HERE. How Detroit was only ranked #7 in 2009 is beyond me. All I know is, 2009 was a rough year for the city, with an unemployment rate closing in on 30% and home prices falling faster than ever, it’s a shoe-in for the 2010 ranking when they come out.

What do you think? Have you ever been to another city in the US that was worse than Detroit in terms of overall quality of living?
