There's one marvelous street in downtown Detroit though -- the Heidelberg Project. It's a block-long outsider art installation. The buildings are painted and decorated, the empty lots full of sculptures. I hope this link works:

Oh foof, the link didn't work, and I don't know how to make it work. You'll just have to google Heidelberg Project on your own.

has anyone heard about Detroit's plan for these vacant lots? A few people have informed me that the city plans on turning their vacant parcels into farmland. Meaning there will be farmland in between the urban core and the suburbs. If that is true, it's great to see Detroit looking for unconventional, creative solutions to its massive problems.
