  1. Im glad to hear this! I really like Detroit! Keep up the renaissance!
  2. Woah woah woah... Let ME set things straight, since I supposedly "started this." I never meant to start a fued (I think thats how you spell it.... LOL). I said I like Detroit. Im from Seattle, and while I like it, I like do sincerely like Detroit. Seattle is a Pacific Rim city. Thats why we're so cosmopolitan. And surprisingly we're still 70% white. I believe our foreign born population is around 20%. Comparing this with Detroit, your white population is only around 12% and your foreign-born population is the lowest of any major american city at 5%. Seattle used to be a one-industry kind of town like Detroit, Detroit being centered around the automobile while Seattle was centered around Boeing. Luckily, Seattle had an opportunity to diversify its economy and thats why our economy is so vibrant now. Detroit is just now able to do it and is making some good progress. Detroit also has some pretty severe racial issues that seattle has never had, due largely in part to our geographic isolation that also is the reason for our late development. Anywho, I could write a report on this crap. Im so passionate about it.... :-) But to make things clear... I did not mean to start a war here. Im very sorry. And Im also surprised to those of you who read everything. Kudos!
  3. This is amazing! I cant wait to visit this city! Ill be there this summer I hope!
  4. Its purely beauty. Old wealth. I love it! Tickles my fancy. Nonetheless, my compliments go out to this forum! You really keep it going. I love that! Keep it up!
  5. Photos like this just keep me falling in love with this city!
  6. I just want to chime in again and applaud everyone in this forum for representing Detroit and clearing people's negative stereotypes. Keep it up! You ARE the force of citizens that are changing Detroit for the better! :-)
  7. I could dig that, but I havent heard any talks of it. Its sad really.
  8. You know, that is a very good point. Places like Atlanta even have NHL (If Im not mistaken). and we know Atlanta is far away from Canada. I really enjoy hockey. Its my favorite spectator sport. I hardly doubt youll see me playing it... but yeah, Vancouver's got the Canucks in the NHL and the Grizzlies in the WHL and Seattle's only got the Thunderbirds... Oh well, maybe after they boot the Sonics off to Oklahoma, we can use the Arena for NHL!!!! (Hopefully)... LOL
  9. Hahaha.... I love the humor! And I wish the Seahawks the best season possible.... hopefully, theyll do just slightly better than last season... (That means by winning the Superbowl...) But I said ew because I only like hockey and basketball... Sorry football and baseball just arent my thing.
  10. Im beginning to take on a liking to Detroit!
  11. I had NO clue Panama had a city! NEAT! Im gonna have to do some research on this place. Wikipedia here I come!
  12. You must have went there during an event.... or something... Portland just doesnt have bad traffic.... not even during rush hour. I know I go there all the time to go shopping... :-)
  13. "Morris Brown" off the new Outkast album "Idlewild" (Thats the name of the Elementary school I went).
  14. I know this is hella late, but Snowguy, you do mean that Minneapolis' metro area is the largest, right? Because Indianapolis: 785,000 and 2,000,000 in metro. Columbus: 730,000 and 1,840,000 in metro. And... Minneapolis: 375,000 and 3,100,000 in metro. Minneapolis is by far the densest of those three mentioned cities. Minneapolis is my favorite followed by Columbus and then Idianapolis, even though I love them all! Anyway, back to transit!!!
  15. More photos! I like the south and know almost nothing about this city.... :-( HELP INFORM ME!!! :-)
  16. yeah, tell me about it.... that pic is great!
  17. Everyone has been saying that. I really find it hard to believe, but I guess after millions of people telling me that Boise is better than I think, Ill guess Ill reconsider (remember Im from Seattle, and I think "liberal" Boise compares nothing with liberal Seattle, let alone "conservative" Seattle). None-the-less, I just had friend of a friend move over to Boise. He's gay and in a relationship with a cute Argentenian guy. LOL. I guess Boise just got two people that are minorities, gays and ethnic minorities.... LOL... Anyways, kudos to Boise.... I like tolerance! Anyway, PICTURES!!!! Quick question, would you say it is more liberal than Spokane?
  18. disregard, I read someone else's post wrong and was about to comment on it.... sorry...
  19. MORE PICS OF BOISE!!!! Regardless of my belief of those hills, I DO like Boise.... And Id like to see more artwork in the form of photography! PLEASE!!! :-)
  20. I LOVE BOSTON!!!! I CANT WAIT TO GO THERE!!!! PLEASE, KEEP THE PHOTOS COMING!!!! I noticed Boston had NO picture of the day thread like Providence and Detroit and a few other places do.... Make this the one!!!! Keep the photos coming!!!! Theyre great!!!!
  21. Thats it.... but does 8 Mile really look like that? The closest thing Ive ever seen to something looking like 8 Mile is when I went to Tijuana.... and I hate to say it, but even Tijuana was better than 8 Mile.... No offense Detroiters, But I REALLY give my props and amazement to that city, and I will surely set my other ignorant friends straight about this rebounding city as I was.
  22. Holy friggin crap! This forum is amazing! Those people that have left Detroit because of suburbanization really had no idea what big mistake they were making! I always thought Detroit was hell on Earth.... partly because of 8 Mile (the movie). I vowed after seeing that movie that I would never go there.... Now I AM DEFINATELY GOING THERE!!!! It is sad that so much of Detroit has really decayed, but Im glad to see a renewd interest in it... Is that Renaissance still going on...??? Has it cooled down or flickered brighter or stayed the same? Its amazing that you can buy a home for a dollar from the city! Shoot, in Tacoma you cant buy one for a $100,000. (And I was told that Tacoma is ghetto.... HAH) Now Im actually interested in Detroit. What do ya know? And kudos to those maintaining this forum! Youve got an excellent ability in photography! Keep it up!
