Renaissance Center, Detroit: 9 reviews and 12 photos

  Where are the tourist
by littlesam1

I visited the central business area and found the beautiful General Motors Renaissance Center on the waterfront. Walking through the Renaissance Center I saw huge food courts with vendors offering food like many tourist area's in many major cities. But there were no customers. There was no one there except for the people working in the food court. I was here on a Friday afternoon during the lunch rush hour. I literally had the building alone all to myself. It was very sad to see. This seems to be the story of Detroit, a once great American city now all but forgotten.
