Humans of Detroit


July 21, 2014

“We’ve been here for 30 thirty years — raised 5 kids here. Right now we’re taking our piece of Detroit and taking care of it.”

What’s the best part about living here?

“The people and the diversity. The people because of the city and the way that it is. Our friends in the suburbs don’t know their neighbors, or need to rely on their neighbors, but we need to rely on ours. Because when you come home from church Sunday morning and your car is on blocks, with all of the tires stolen, and you need to be somewhere, your neighbors say ‘hey, take my van.’ Our friends in the burbs don’t have that, and to me that’s the best part.”
