Once a shining city on the hill, the place known as Motor City has seen a tragic decline in the last few decades. A housing stock that was the envy of the nation was almost abandoned. But the people of Detroit did not give up. They are rebuilding the neighborhoods that helped fuel the industrial revolution.
