Wrong side of the tracks

With the collapse of the car industry, areas of Detroit have lost their population, the houses have become derelict and nature has started to reclaim Detroit. Reminds me of Joel Sternfeld’s pictures of the High Line in NYC before The Friends of the High Line (FHL) started to develop it into a linear park. FHL was partly inspired by The Promenade Plantée in Paris 12ème.

Incidentally, some of the Joel Sternfeld’s pictures are from Sweet Earth – Experimental utopias in America. A fine book!
