Ruin Porn Products: Packard Plant Amusement Park

New, 1 comment

The Detroit News is now calling the Packard Plant an "underground tourist attraction," as people flock to photograph it before it is gone. (Assuming there is money to a make that happen, which sounds less and less likely the more we hear about the owner: Dominic Cristini). "It was like an amusement park here over the weekend — an amusement park for creatives," said Chris Arace, 32, of Lake Orion. In addition to photographers (are they taking photos of each other taking photos?) graffiti artists are trying to be like Banksy and also tag the plant. Perhaps if Cristini wants to make some money, he should charge admission and add concessions: coney dogs, of course. [The Detroit News]
