In the past few years, Detroit’s financial struggles have played out across the national stage like a cautionary tale for other major U.S cities. A slumping housing market, a massive flight of residents leaving the city for its suburbs, the controversial shut-down of water for thousands of residents with unpaid accounts, and filing for bankruptcy amid one of the highest unemployment rates in the country all contributed to the story of a spectacular and sad fall from grace. But through all of that, a new Detroit seems to be burgeoning. Green initiatives have sprouted across the city, with urban gardens and farms, the automotive industry looks to be on the verge of roaring back, and there is of course the influx of young urban professionals moving from New York to Detroit. How all this affects Detroit’s economy will have to wait to come into clearer view.
