Blight has traveled through and is coming out on the other side in one of the cities worst hit by the recession. As part of their Housing Roadmap tour, Zillow documents Detroit's hopeful residents helping the city through its recovery.
“Detroit has taken its medicine, including going through a bankruptcy that ended late last year. It’s also aggressively addressing the blight caused by tens of thousands of distressed homes that were given up to graffiti and squatters,” Zillow reports.
“Although burned-out residences and fire-ravaged factories still plague the landscape, people are regaining their innate Detroit pride and enjoy showing off how far the city has come.”
