Decaying Detroit

Photographer Tim Fadek forwards this image from the Detroit area.   This is the old Michigan Central Station (designed by the Warren and Wetmore firm, which also did Grand Central in New York). Abandoned for the past twenty years, it’s mostly home to drug addicts and the homeless. It’s also a timely metaphor.
