Write your own 'Detroit is the new Brooklyn' article!

Posted By on Fri, Jan 30, 2015 at 12:05 PM

We get it. You're excited about the potential and possibilities that lurk behind the fading facades of Detroit. You don't just want to tell all your friends, you want to scream it from the rooftops. Well now it's that much easier. All you need to do is follow the cheeky checklist provided by entitled, "A check list for Upstate Place/Rust Belt City is the new Brooklyn articles." It's not just for Rust Belt proselytizers, though; it's equally good for grading articles making a similar case. Items to check off include:

❑ (This Place) is The New Brooklyn.

❑ It's so cheap compared to New York.

❑ And it's post-industrial. This was a factory!

❑ No, seriously, guys, like, it is so cheap. They're practically (or literally) giving away properties.

And it kind of goes on like that.
