The new Google Maps and Detroit

It's pretty cool. Easier to navigate, and they have this feature that lets you look at street view from different points in time since 2007. It really comes in handy seeing all the changes that have happened in shithole Detroit in the past several years.

More of this please. That's haunting enough to be oddly beautiful.

It's amazing. You can basically just pick a random street and see how it has transformed to a dilapidated pile of shit. Seems like hardly any of it has gotten better or stayed the same. It is really sad what that city has become.

I can't see half the pics but was the Packard plant the one they're selling or was it Duesenberg or something?

Yeah I think they put it up for sale a couple times. So far nobody's done anything with it.

Watch these idiots push a dump truck off the fourth floor. The dude jacking it up is lucky he didn't get crushed when it fell backwards.

That's gotta be the only city in the country where you could do something like that and not get seen by the cops / arrested.

no you can't, thats a fable. UAW is only one of many issues that caused the downfall of detroit. Likely a minor issue.

And there are places in detroit better now than 5 years ago, too.

Yeah, I'd like to think "the big three making shitty inefficient cars via shitty inefficient internal processes for decades" and "always being woefully unprepared for and/or unwilling to respond to shifts in what the market wanted" had a bit more influence in what caused Detroit's downfall.

I thought part of the reason they started making the shitty cars was because of being forced to still pay high wages and pensions to the factory workers which was no longer feasible because of foreign competition increasing.

It was. Same thing that killed off the UK car industry, amongst others.
