We spent the morning of August 20 exploring one of the depopulated areas of Detroit. I wanted to see the urban gardens and farms that have been created there. Uninhabited derelict houses have been removed, and in some areas grass has been planted and is mowed. Other areas have been left to grow wild. Streets are deserted, and it is very quiet like being in the countryside, despite seeing buildings in the distance. The infrastructure is crumbling. It was eerie to think of all the working people in those neighbourhood, now gone along with their homes. Where are they now?
