Fauxtopia

New, 6 comments

The intriguingly titled blog post from Sweet Juniper, "The Fauxtopias of Detroit's Suburbs," is a history report/warning on Greenfield Village, Henry Ford's living diorama of nostalgia. (If you don't watch out, you might get serenaded by an impromptu BARBERSHOP SEXTET!) While we generally like people that like buildings, the idea of collecting them and moving them to Dearborn creeps us out, especially coming from Ford who once said, ""We shall solve the city problem by leaving the city."
