{ dreaming about a place i'll never see

The fantastic Grand Ballroom. Still recognizable but not in good shape.
Virtually the entire ceiling now rest on the floor. The three massive chandeliers, intact until 1997, were gone.

"Detroit is known for one of the most stunning collections of pre-depression architecture in the world. The past two decades have seen several of these treasures sit vacant, waiting for economic revival. On these pages you will find information about the past, present, and future situations of a few of these landmarks. It is my hope that this information helps you gain an appreciation for the importance of both the history and continued survival of these buildings."
