I was born and raised in Detroit. In fact, I lived there for nearly all of my life before moving to the suburbs (that”s a topic for a different post). Growing up as a child of the “90s, I didn”t quite understand how Detroit ranked compared to other cities. Slowly but surely it became clear; we didn”t rank well. “What is wrong with Detroit,” I thought, “what is so bad about the city?” I didn”t travel much so it took getting the Internet after I graduated high school to realize what was wrong. The answer was simple; a lot was wrong with Detroit. Instead of focusing on the negative like the rest of the media, I want to take time to talk about a few things that you probably did not know about Detroit. This is by no means an extensive list. It”s more of a few thoughts from a local.
