The brief history of Detroit
In the distant past, Detroit, part of which you see in the live camera, was an economically and culturally developed US city. Amazing architectural structures were built. Detroit had the proud name of “American Paris”. The main attractions were: Washington Boulevard, Public Library building, Art Institute and Cobo Hall exhibition center, Renaissance Center high-rise 73 floors building and Spirit of Detroit bronze composition. All of this personified the well-being, stability and luxury of the city.
After opening the famous automobile plants: Ford, General Motors, Chrysler there came many immigrants that led to the emergence of poor neighborhoods in Detroit. Crime, prostitution and drug trafficking have increased.
In spite of difficult times, Detroit, where our online camera is located, has managed to preserve the glory of its city attracting tourists from all over the world. Its dubious reputation has become a kind of “highlight” that attracts guests with its abandoned skyscrapers, dangerous areas and surviving theaters, giving a harsh romanticism of a western city.
