Abandoned Neighborhood in Detroit, Michigan

The fact that abandoned structures are so notable in Detroit, Michigan is unfortunate, but it's made the city an irresistible location for urban explorers. Even in Detroit's downtown core, it's amazing how many incredible buildings are unoccupied or completely abandoned.

Just a short walk outside of downtown we stumbled upon Brush Park, a once affluent neighborhood full of grand homes and mansions. Large portions of land have since been cleared of derelict properties as the area declined, so many of the streets now have more vacant lots than standing structures. A few of the homes have actually been restored, others look prepped for renovation, and a number of them are completely abandoned or in ruins.

What makes Detroit's abandoned locations so fascinating is the wealth that existed here. When you see the architecture, the level of craftsmanship, or the historical status of many of these places you can't help but feel a bit heartbroken about the entire situation. This is just one neighborhood, but we were only a 10 minute walk away from the heart of downtown. It paints a picture of just how serious Detroit's decline has been.
