Section in PLayboy called Raw Data...with stats and facts posted this:

DownTown 25% - The portion of Detroit's total land mass that consists of vacant lots.

Do you agree or disagree with this stat?

Sadly, agree if they are including parking lots as vacant.

Quite honestly, I thought it would be more. Somewhere around a third or slightly more.

JTW...you got me on that one.

SuperSport...can you believe she is 41 yrs old.

I also thought the vacant land would be about 1/3rd of total property.

20 years can be airbrished away rather easily if she is in good shape.

Jt1 has point sport. I could photoshop you down to 41. While I was at it I could fill in those lots with new buildings.

It's hard to picture it because you have to factor out all the streets and parks.

Interesting graphic, Hornwrecker. Looks like a jigsaw puzzle losing all of its pieces...

I found it at the Detroit Planning Commission website, though it was in a long strip. There's lots of other things that are worth exploring, like the maps. If I don't find an updated on, I might just try doing one if I get really bored.
