This is in an area close to Comerica Park which over the years has made attempts to be revitalized. Some beautiful old victorian homes are still in this area and most are abandoned. I can see some revitalization coming in the near future to this area and hopefully it will be a part of Detroit's resurgence.

The neglect of a residence like this is very sad.

What a neat looking place. It is sad to see such a building/home in neglect, but it makes for a dramatic image. Nice photo.

Must be recent, as it doesn't look too run down. Seems to have a halo around it...

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could go inside that unique building? Makes me want to explore it.
