I stumbled upon this stunning series of photos of Detroit. American Ruins.

On the upside, I predict that Detroit’s run-down splendor and bargain basement cost of living will end up attracting artists and innovators as present-day “hip cities” like San Francisco and even -gasp- Austin become unlivable for those making less than $200k/year.

There is another photo slide of various global modern ruins with more amazing photos beneath the Detroit slide show.
