Forgotten Detroit

It's stunning, really. You don't have to travel to Rome to view ancient ruins. You can just head up I-75 and get your fill.

The photos at Forgotten Detroit are sobering, and sad, and beautiful. This is what happens when a once-great city is left behind. That's the waiting room of the Michigan Central train depot, abandoned since the trains stopped rolling in 1988. There's a ghost town just a few hours north of me. The stories in those walls are mostly untold. There's nobody to tell them.
