The Detroit Unreal Estate Agency
Detroit’s glimmer of hope… or its last gasp?
In a way, a strange, new American dream can be found here, amid the crumbling, semi-majestic ruins of a half-century’s industrial decline. The good news is that, almost magically, dreamers are already showing up. Mitch and Gina have already been approached by some Germans who want to build a giant two-story-tall beehive. Mitch thinks he knows just the spot for it.
Actually, the real glimmer of hope is the “large, stable Bangladeshi community” mentioned in the op-ed. People! Detroit needs people!
