Last year, College for Creative Studies student Jake Walter created a detailed, interactive 3D model of Detroit's infamous Michigan Central Station for his senior thesis, titled "15th and Dalzelle," which we recently stumbled upon. The level of detail is truly impressive, from the graffiti on the walls to the sunlight pouring through the ceiling — it's the next best thing to sneaking inside. (Note: The Metro Times does not advise sneaking inside.) Check out a video preview, as well as more screenshots from the project, below.

You can read more about the project on Walter's blog.
