The automobile industry jumpstarted Detroit’s rise and made it the most industrialized city in the United States. But because of changes in American society and population demographics, the city lay deserted for decades and urban prairies complete with falcon, deer and coyote turning the urban landscape into a B movie setting. Now an unexpected turn of events has created an environment where young people are moving back into the ruins of the former Detroit… are they a new kind of pioneer? Could this now be a way for America to be “rediscovered”?
