Detroit Motor City is in the spotlights these days. It’s the time of year when the big automakers of the world bring their shiny new cars to the Detroit Auto Show. After some troublesome times the Big Three US car makers have hit on good times again, but the city of Detroit, once world famous for it’s cars and it’s music, is now more famous for the decay of it’s once grand buildings and the high levels of unemployment.
