Renting a Cheap Apartment in Detroit

Home of the American auto industry, a declining population of Detroit has resulted in much change for the Motor City. Blighted homes have been torn down, other types of businesses have been wooed by city leaders, and Detroit is building a future. Adapting to changes in commuting habits and higher gas prices has changed the types of cars built by U.S. auto manufacturers, but 10 percent of American jobs are still auto-industry related, and many of those are located here. Quicken, OnStar, Blue Cross Blue Shield, HP Enterprise, and Compuware are among the major non-auto companies. Culturally, Detroit is known for producing great musicians, from blues to techo to Eminem, whose starring role in the movie “8 Mile” showcased the challenge of growing up poor in suburban Detroit.
