Picture of the Day: Beautiful, Horrible Urban Decline

William Livingstone House in Detroit

The William Livingstone House in Detroit, constructed in 1893 in the once-elegant Brush Park neighborhood.

Time Magazine published a powerful photo series about urban decline in Detroit.

"Ruins are the visible symbols and landmarks of our societies and their changes...the volatile result of the change of eras and the fall of empires. This fragility leads us to watch them one very last time: to be dismayed, or to admire, it makes us wonder about the permanence of things."
