    • Thanks for compiling and putting these together. I think people need to be reminded of things. If there were a physical book of these, I would certainly buy it...just sayin'.

    • I think someone needs to do a little more research, the Lewis Cass Technical High School is not abandoned and dilapidated. It was razed in 2011 after a new, state of the art building was built to house the school next door in 2004. Its a nice attempt at social commentary, but since the new school was actually an example of expansion and improvement in Detroit it seems to have missed its mark. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_Technical_High_School
