NYC to Detroit

I am so glad to be home here in Detroit. I just got back from my first visit to New York City and am pleased to finally know that I do not love this city blindly. I’ve had many people tell me that Detroit isn’t a real city, and that New York will make me green with envy. However, I found New York charming in that if one took downtown Detroit, multiplied it and put a lot of people and businesses into it, it would be a similar collection of beautiful architecture, spirit, arts, and culture speckled with modern touches. New York, it was a pleasure, but Detroit I love you so.

    Mollika works hard to get grants to finance her trips :0) There are many perks to working for a university.

    I’ve heard of people from New York City visiting Detroit and calling it “Little New York” as a compliment.

    This sums up my feelings about Detroit versus New York for me…

    Unfortunately, most people from other cities have nothing but bad things to say about Detroit, (but most of those people haven’t been here).

    Atul, I love your list of “Top 10 Reasons why Detroit is better than New York City”. I hate ragging on any other city, but I also hate hearing “Detroit isn’t a real city. Go to New York.”
