Look people stop claiming cities to be dead. There are still many people living in cities I've seen people call "dead". I mean does anyboy know the definition of dead. Regaurdless of you may feel about certain cities there are still people who call that city home so show some respect sometimes. Especially seeing how many of you have never set foot into the cities you down so much. Anyway here are some pictures of "dead" Detroit......and if you live in a city that have been called dead on C-D feel free to posts pics as well

Actually, Metro Detroit is nearly at peak population.

There are 5 million folks in Metro Detroit, including tons of wealth. Detroit is richer than many other U.S. metros.

Detroit is anything but "dead".

But it still has some dead parts. Not saying that all of Detroit is like this but people don't call it dead for a reason.

Default Cleveland, dead?? "get real everybody"

People love to trash both Cleveland and Detroit ... without having much of a solid base to establish such opinions, since many of those talking "speak blindly" ... leaning on the old "misconceptions" of the media and others. Most people should recognize that Cleveland is no longer a national "punchline" ... that's wayyyyyyyyyy out of style these days.

Cleveland IS a recovering city that is in the midst of an ongoing and an exciting renaissance ... this city offers an excellent quality of life, vast cultural amenities and world renowned healthcare ... and people are beginning to recognize the assets and the strengths of Cleveland.

Despite what Cleveland's many detractors have to say, this city is NOT dead!!!
THERE IS "LIFE" IN CLEVELAND ... AND LOT'S OF IT!

Indeed, Cleveland was just ranked # 10 out of the top 50 cities in America FOR IT'S ECONOMIC RECOVERY & STRENGTH ... and placed 49th GLOBALLY out of 150 cities!
Hmmmmmmm ... maybe not as "DEAD" as people make it out to be.


Greater Cleveland's recovery ranks in top of U.S. metro areas, study says | cleveland.com


You had to have known that Cleveland would HAVE TO PLACE SECOND in this thread, thanks for creating such a great thread ... and "LET THE TRUTH COME OUT" about these "alleged" DEAD CITIES!

Definitely true. Detroit has tons and tons of blight.

I'm just saying that the vast majority of the metro is like any other U.S. metro.

Yet people and companies continue to leave both Cleveland and Detroit. I only wish the best for both of them. I grew up around Cleveland, and have very fond memories of NE Ohio. I also have very fond memories of Detroit in its heyday.

Sadly, Cleveland is about to lose it's Continental hub - not a good thing, at all.

While Cleveland "may" ultimately lose it's status as a hub for Continental Airlines ( Now United ), it's not going to obliterate the entire city ...
yes, it's NOT GOOD to lose this hub ... but there are many, many other important projects that are NEW to Cleveland, thus resulting in an ongoing transformation of the city.

It's no guarantee that Continental will pull it's hub out of Hopkins Int'l Airport, but it is rumoured ...

Not really.

Both metros are roughly flat in population since 2000.

Detroit and Cleveland are more stagnant than declining.

And Metro Detroit had very robust population and economic growth during the 1990's.
