I was stunned at the prices these were going for . . . I owned lots in the areas and thought I was going to be a millionaire, lol. Unfortunately, I held on to my vacant land as an asset to sell as needed, now I can’t afford the taxes. Now, I realize that it’s bad karma to hold onto a lot of vacant land, the land should be used.
This brochure has been drifting around my office as a reminder. I want to contact a business friend in regards the people I know who profited from selling land at this auction . . . wonder how they are doing now. The (super-good-looking/healthy) friend had 4-children and a lovely wife.
Map link shows where the auction was, the hotel is now becoming student condos, it was completely gutted . . . wonder what the (mapped) convention center will become.

Funny how often the wreckage in Detroit appears violent. It’s not…not in the literal sense. In a figurative sense the city has been under siege for decades. The surrounding armies laying siege to the city have spent decades launching an artillery barrage. They bombarded the city with free trade, automation and neglect. Left with few resources and little cover, this once great fortresses of industry lay in ruin.
