WATCH: What Do People In Chicago Really Think About Detroit?

Play episode

On a recent trip to the windy city, we decided to hit the streets and ask a simple question to anyone who would talk to us – and we found lots of people would.

What do you think about Detroit?

There’s always this talk about positive buzz about Detroit in other cities, and we wanted to find out if this was truly the case.

In this Daily Detroit original video, which should be taken more as fun than as science, we hit a few neighborhoods by L-Train and city bus from our downtown crash pad such as Wicker Park, to over by a former Schlitz Brewery on Belmont, and a few other places for the weekend, and the results were as varied as the people. All in all, as always, Chicago was a fun visit.

But we gotta say to the last guy in the video? He definitely has it all wrong.

An additional shout-out is in order to the kind and interesting folks of Gaper’s Block for their hospitality and the usefulness of their site. If you want to hop off a Megabus in Chicago and basically plan a weekend on the fly, the site is invaluable. You’ll also learn a thing or two about Chicago culture while you’re at it.
