Trip to Detroit

I spend last week(Aug 20th week) in Detroit(South Field) for a business meeting. This is my 1st trip to Detroit. I like the area and lot's of green. Very nice people with clean air. I stayed in Town Center and its a very nice place.

I was really surprised to see the quality of infrastructure- poor roads, stagnant waters, broken homes?, etc... The fall of auto industry & poor economy is very visible. A friend of mine is living there for a while and he was telling me that even 10years back, place looked good. They are also thinking of moving out of the place...even though they like it very much! The local newspapers talks about the housing industry in details, everyday....the foreclosures!

Let's hope that the Detroit auto industry comes back and brings out eco-friendly cars with focus on MPG.
