"Motor City Reborn"

Detroit came to the fore as the headquarters of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, but the White Flight and Oil Crisis of the 1970s dealt the 'Motor City' a harsh blow, one that left it paralyzed for decades on end. It has now undergone a renewal. Empty lots have been transformed into urban farms and abandoned buildings now house museums and cultural centers. A fresh wave of ingenuity is the driving force behind the city's revitalization, spurred by an influx of youth. The flourishing street art makes for a colorful backdrop to the rebirth of the city, and architectural monuments like the Guardian Building have been restored. The Woodward Avenue theater district hosts a refreshing milieu of classics and premiers, the beautifully restored Fox Theater its crown jewel. The stadium at Comerica Park is the home of the Detroit Tigers, while the Lions play at the Ford Field nearby. Places of interest include the Motown Museum that celebrates the soundtrack of the city's heyday, while the vast Henry Ford Museum is a testament to the very pioneering spirit that now feeds the city's new lease on life. The city's culinary scene is on the rise as well with innovative chefs and local distilleries leading the way. With its many parks, museums and theaters, Detroit is roaring back to life.
