The city of Detroit, Michigan is located across the Detroit River from Windsor, Ontario in Canada. When night falls on both cities, a person can look across the river and see the other city in another country all lit up and shining brightly.
Detroit is the largest city in Michigan and is mostly known for the booming US auto industry, however that industry is now suffering with the economic slump that is currently affecting the United States and the world and so Detroit does not have as big an influence over that industry as it used to. The city itself dates back to 1701 and at one time was the United States' fifth most populated city. People like it because it is so close to Canada, it is right by the water, and it has a rich affluent history, however that is slowly changing now.
The architecture along the waterfront shows a number of different styles. The Comerica Tower at Detroit Centre is an example of post modern neogothic architecture but the skyscrapers are a great example of Art Deco. The skyline of Detroit is easily recognizable, mostly due to its tall skyscrapers and once prominent buildings, despite the fact that the rest of the city is mostly low rise buildings.
