Decay of Detroit

I was chatting with a former Detroit resident while waiting in line at at restaurant today. He was mentioning how dramatically Detroit is becoming a ghost town. Ironically I later got home and happened across this Weather Channel Secrets of Earth episode about how nature is reclaiming Detroit in an almost Chernobyl like fashion. It reminded me of the drone shot footage of the old Packard plant. If you didn't watch that footage when I posted it before I definite recommend checking it out.

These photos of the Packard plant and the Fisher Body plant shot by French photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre from their book “The Ruins of Detroit“ give you a good feel for what the video is like.
