I like to claim the D as one of my homes, even though I was born in the suburbs and didn't live their past age 2. But between the Red Wings and The White Stripes, it's a cool place to be from, if not necessarily to live. Of course if you wanted to live there, it'd be extraordinarily cheap. Barry found listings of homes in Detroit for, get ready for it... $100. These are homes. For $100. Here are the actual listings. As you can see, they might classify as fixer uppers.
(btw, I read Barry religiously, but I actually noticed this particular post via the Tumblog j10, which is awesome, but there's no info about it, like who posts it or what not. Not even a contact, as far as I can tell. Very frustrating. Put it in your RSS though, as it's a good source of cool links.)
