GooBing Detroit A garage in northeast Detroit deteriorates. Lady waving to the street view car in the first image, c. 2009. Nearby the Heidelberg Project, and in the style, though not sure if a Tyree or not. Why Don’t We Own This? This block is incredible. The New York Times visited this block during the Motor City Mapping survey: "Blight, as Karl Baker, one Detroit resident, has seen, tends to spread. Most of the houses nearby are standing but abandoned, and visitors have clearly passed through — empty liquor bottles lie along debris-covered floors near broken windows and doors, every memory of a metal appliance or gutter seems to be gone from some of the homes, and two old couches that were dumped along a lawn are now blanketed by a thick layer of snow. The last neighbor left six months ago, he said, and the single streetlight overhead has not worked for months. That’s a lotta washing machines… Just east of Osborn, in “Burbank”… if anyone actually calls it that. Source: Why Don’t We Own This?
