The Mall Before The Sprawl
"In no other major metropolitan area do the suburbs overshadow their central city like the suburbs here dominate Detroit.The build-out never stops. Development daily pushes the boundaries of suburbia outward, further tipping the balance of wealth, power and population away from Detroit, whose 50-year decline is directly connected to suburbia's rise.This is a birthday retrospective. It is a snapshot of five decades of social change, for better or worse. It is a story about the American Dream, but it is also about racial conflict and economic change."
