I can only understand this as a visceral act of trolling.
Who’s letting Sandra Lee write buzzfeed food posts? Gross!
I’m a local Detroiter and I can vouch for the author. This is a true story.
Beautiful, and respectful. It’s so hard to articulate the love we have for this city, simultaneously hard-won and no-big-deal. And it’s so confusing to experience such a real tangible relationship to your place, your city, amongst all of the current hype and shifting populations. You’ve done so well here. Cheers to you.

yes, and prices in NYC are a really good barometer for the midwest.
haha! now that’s paid advertising!
Detroit is awesome because all the cool kids live there. The scaredy cats move to NYC.
Some young “artsy” kids who are obviously not from Detroit thought it would be a total laugh to follow through on an obscure twitter conversation about “saving the city,” by making this kickstarter project. Then the company that owns the rights to RoboCop put up 90% of the money to make it happen. Some Detroiters actively dislike the RoboCop franchise. The kids were completely shot down in one neighborhood meeting by residents who said “No way do we glorify the police or this stupid movie!” But it looks like this thing is off the ground, so let’s see where it’s final location ends up being. It is guaranteed to be completely desecrated within six months.Personally I hope it will be sold for scrap. Sometimes outsiders complain about how hard it is to come into the city. Just come with half a brain and a little respect. Is it really so hard?
Is this article a paid advertisement? Whole foods is opening up a store in the rapidly gentrifying, dense, and commuter heavy midtown core area of Detroit. They considered it a good move because of the huge hospital district directly adjacent to their location. So med students, hospital staff, commuters stopping in on their way home, and Wayne State students don’t actually qualify as the “neighborhoods in the places like Detroit ” mentioned (paragraph four, thanks for that gem). Not saying that neighborhood Detroiters won’t shop or work there, but we have a lot of excellent food, farmers markets, and truly inspiring food educators around these parts. Whole Foods is a dim light in comparison, catering to a suburban crowd, spewing corporate messaging and savioristic jargon all the way to the bank.

Two Ways To Tell You’re From the City of Detroit:
