There’s been lots of news lately about the rapidly declining quality of life in Detroit, a once-booming industrial city that is now almost completely abandoned. I’ve already posted about an incident of a dead body left unattended for about a month in the middle of Detroit’s downtown area and a video that shows the quietness of Detroit, but this series of images by Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre at Time magazine really show how terrible the city has decayed.

This is a bad thing for any city to experience, but a part of me really wants to visit Detroit to explore this place and all of its ruins.
