It’s a sad truth: It often takes a disaster before people will do what’s needed to solve a problem. For Detroit, it was a slow-motion tragedy that engulfed the city for decades. Today, however, the city is in the midst of a remarkable turnaround.

That second verse was lit, very clever lines. That whole album is pretty decent though.

Does two square miles (out of 143 square miles) of "renovations" really make a comeback?

Until the majority of the city starts to change, it seems premature to proclaim a comeback.

I lived in Detroit for about 10 years and moved in 2005 when my job offshored (auto industry). I'm originally from the Upstate NY area but loved living in the Detroit area and think that it is one of the most underappreciated areas in the country.

I'm glad to see the area starting to attract new employers and the overall jobs situation improving. I've seen a lot on the news about the economic improvement zones in the city and hope it keeps going.

I agree! The majority of the city is still in slow decline, but more than 2 square miles of the city are making a comeback or holding steady. Corktown, the New Center, the Villages area, parts of Mexicantown, Eastern Market, the Palmer Woods/Sherwood Forest/University of Detroit area, the East Riverfront, and Grandmont-Rosedale are all at various stages of revitalization.
