Comment of the Day

Every city goes through this. The less desirable areas attract a few brave souls which starts a bit of a movement and then the bridge and tunnel crowds sees this area as the hip place to live and that signals that the area has peaked, the coolness factor subsides, everyone looks toward the next new hip neighborhood. Detroit is a chock-a-block full of deals and great potential by the sounds of things. The folks who are complaining are the people who were there from the start and were not the movers or the shakers and are feeling left out because they just sat there and watched it all happen. The forget that they benefit from this, their property values have gone up despite their lack of effort. -REames [The Detroit News Goes Looking For Gentrification, Trouble]
