Derelict With A Touch of Cheer: Matty Moroun Decorates The Ruin Porn For the Holidays

New, 18 comments

Detroit's Michigan Central Station, arguably our most famous local ruin porn/photo op has made like a Rockette and brought out the glitz and glitter for the holidays. Somehow, a building that can't get glass into its gaping window holes (save for a few exceptions) can get a heavy dose of snowy twinkly holiday themed lights. Was owner Matty Maroun trying to steal some of Dan Gilbert's thunder? Downtown real estate mogul Gilbert is known to gift Detroit with a pop-up Somerset Mall this each year, also accompanied by a heavy dose of the holiday light display. Perhaps this is an attempt to ensure that locals take the family holiday card shot in Corktown instead of Downtown this year? C'mon. You know you want to. Especially all of you that already took your wedding photos in front of the thing.
