. Michigan Central Station . The symbol of Detroit Ruins and also the Symbol of Detroit Revitalization 💥 . Built in June 1912 to December 1913 . Closed in 1988 . . It is the former main intercity passenger rail depot in Detroit, Michigan . The last train left MCS 30 yrs ago and it has stood vacant ever since, a hulking embodiment of Detroit’s long decline from America’s manufacturing engine to its biggest municipal bankruptcy. . The 105 yr old building that once handled all the Detroit’s passenger rail traffic closed in 1988 due to a decline in ridership and took a new life in the subsequent years for urban explorers , the homeless and scavengers.(Wikipedia ) . Ford Motor Co recently bought the building and plans to convert the 18 story station into a Technology campus and bring thousands of jobs in the city . . Tomorrow is the Purchase Opening party and I couldn’t be more happy to be a part of this celebration. . . .#RevitalizeDetroit💥👊🏻💥 . .See more in my Story about retrieving the stolen clock 👆🏻👆🏻😀 . .
