A New Urban Jungle

This post shows that Detroit, having lost more than half its population in just a few short years, is now being taken over by forest (including trees on the roofs of derelict skyscrapers), and like the demilitarized zone in Korea, turning into something of a wildlife sancturary.

It was Bryan who orated about grass growing in the the streets of every city in America. Bryan predicted the cause as the destruction of our farms. In fact, race and the incompetence of our auto magnates appear to have been the major factors.

Man, what a haunting notion. I worked with a landscape architect some years back who photographed instances of nature busting through in cities: roots cracking through sidewalks, mostly. Even he, though, wasn't imagining a natural victory in the works.
