So what your basically saying is since Detroit has the potential to be a great city after it recovers in 50+ years (if even that early) that its better than Cleveland now?

Okay...

Unfortunately, by the time the city starts getting healthy, many of the things that need to be rediscovered and rehabilitated will be vacant lots. I hope it can turn around soon before the character of old Detroit is lost forever.

Detroit is easily my favorite skyline in the world. If this were a skyline battle, Detroit would blow Cleveland away - I'm sure if you took the entire Cleveland skyline and stuck it into Detroit's, you wouldn't even notice a difference.

Yet, though Detroit is on the edge, and in much worse shape with a gloom future ahead of itself, I feel it is a much more vibrant city with plenty to do, and truly an important major city of America.

Ive noticed in your posts that you have a very noticeable personal grudge against Cleveland.

You are joking with that skyline comment...right?

Detroit:

Cleveland:





Clevelands skyline spans for over 1 1/2 miles and contains almost as many buildings as Detroits, but somehow it could fit in the Detroit skyline and nobody would notice? Detroit has a decent skyline, "favorite in the world" is your opinion, but honestly I find your claims kind of ridiculous.

Im not from either city but I would have to go with Detroit on this one. Its just more of a vibrant city. I love the downtown especially what they did to it and the proximty to Windsor is also a big plus. Sports also can be put into this...Red Wings, Tigers, Pistons...not the Lions...yea i think that beats Cleaveland besides the Cavs. Some of the fiendliest people iv come across, honestly i wouldnt mind moving to the D if it wernt on the edge.

Wheres the Booktower in the Detroit skyline and the rest of them along Washington blvd in the images you posted.






But Skylines is not important. Jobs are and Ohio has them and not Michigan which is why Ohio was not one of the two states to lose population in 2008 and Michigan was one of them. As well last month CNBC did a break down of where jobs are and Ohio made the top 10 states in some job sectors while Michigan did not even make one. So I'm going to have to go with Cleavland.

My point with that is to prove Buffalonian4life wrong. It would be incredibly obvious if you put the Cleveland skyline in Detroit, who wouldnt notice that? The Cleveland skyline is nearly the same size as Detroits, but according to Buffalonian4life, you wouldnt even notice it

Some of you would understand if you saw all of his hate towards Cleveland in the past. I have no idea what his problem with us is. Detroit, Cleveland, and Buffalo are like brother (or sister) cities, but he hates Cleveland with a passion and treats us like the stepchild of the family. If I remember correctly, hes never been here before if only for a short time.
