Welcome to Detroit: America's Fastest Shrinking City

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary, Detropia, we see the demolition of one of 100,000 abaondoned homes in Detroit, the fastest shrinking city in the United States. The reporter interviewing the demolition expert says it is as if the city is "going back to the prairie."

      Watching the Detropia segment on Independent Lens made me sad for the City I spent the first 17 years of my life growing up in. My only criticism is to the captions … too white / washed out and the type font too blurry to read without getting out of my chair and standing a foot from the television screen.
