Comments on: These 6 Before And After Photos Show You Just How Far The Detroit Riverfront Has Come http://www.dailydetroit.com/2014/10/03/these-6-before-after-photos-show-you-just-how-far-the-detroit-riverfront-has-come/ What To Know And Where To Go In Metro Detroit Thu, 06 Apr 2017 13:08:38 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.3 By: R.

Martin http://www.dailydetroit.com/2014/10/03/these-6-before-after-photos-show-you-just-how-far-the-detroit-riverfront-has-come/#comment-20259 Sat, 13 Aug 2016 16:57:43 +0000 http://hellyeahdetroit.com/?p=5353#comment-20259 It’s “interesting” how nobody seems to want a delapidated Detroit in their back yard, but aren’t willing to chip in and help it improve. And then they piss and moan when the issues inherent in city environments make their way out of a falling-apart city into the suburbs. Did suburbanites *cause* Detroit’s problems? No, not entiresly (except for the whole flight away from the city, which I can understand). Is it the responsibility of the suburbs to “fix” the city? No, not solely. But stopping with the Detroit-bashing, engaging in some investment back into the city either in terms of time, talents, or treasures (or all three of these) will benefit everyone. Don’t leave it up to the politicians alone, but elect those who are willing to be part of the solution. Don’t leave ti up to the Detroiters alone, but support those who are striving to make a difference. Don’t leave it up to the suburbs alone, but lend a hand where you can. Stop buying the old script that says Detroit’s not your city. How does that script benefit you or anyone else? Detroit is everybody’s opportunity.

Some of us have to work to pay for that.

Every town we drove through was clean and colorful. Are there already established neighborhoods in Detroit?

I’d love to sit in a restaurant or bar with a view of the river. Do something with the warehouse district since it was emptied out for a nonexistent casino.

If you elect another mayor like the Democrat , Coleman Young then the city will go down hill again. Until people of Detroit stop and elect the right people, I will not invest my hard earned money there.

I dont understand why it is the suburbs responsibility to fix it up and/or take a section and make it nice. How many times have the suburbanites been told it is not their city? also been told to stay out. Just like the schools and areas surrounding them are fixed up by volunteers from the suburbs. How about Detroit residents get off their butts and help revitalize their own city? Why should volunteers from the north clean up your messes? Once we have finished it will not be maintained and will fall back into the crap hole it was unfortunately. I wish I was wrong about this, however history has proven otherwise. Detroit, quit expecting handouts and get up and do your share.

Make it a challenge to see which suburb can make the biggest difference. Art, clean up, restoration, police & fire & civic involvement, schools, etc.

It will take time, but things are looking up everywhere.

I live in the heart of the city. It’s changed dramatically just in the past few years.
