Detroit 10 years ago, or Detroit today? I'm guessing the former given the renaissance taking place now.

Chicago. I keep hearing people are leaving because of crime. And the only good part is a neighborhood called a loop and a miracle mile.

If you think building some stadiums and developing a small area in the downtown is a renaissance you may be a bit naive. I have not seen the place in over 10 years admittedly but the level of decay I saw there can never be undone. Much of it is abandoned, much of it looks to not even be in the first world. Unless the population has been replaced, broken infrastructure replaced, corruption cleaned up and the falling down buildings cleared it can not really be that different than it was then. It is by far the worst city in the USA, one of the worst in all of North America (yes that means I am comparing it to Mexico) We Americans should work to avoid seeing any other US city meet Detroits fate. Detroit is like a ship broken on the rocks, it stands as a warning to all, Do not go this way.

Most of Oakland County, MI is very nice and well kept, though. I like the Royal Oak, and Birmingham areas.

Suburban Detroit is not Detroit. You are right, the northern and western suburbs of Detroit are very nice and they stand in stark contrast to thier urban neighbors. In fact there is a great deal of animosity between Detroit proper and its suburbs, the most dysfunctional metro in the USA.
