Derelict Detroit

Der Speigel has another installment of haunting photographs showing the slow death by rot of formerly great Detroit landmarks.  The photos appear to be from Ruins of Detroit by Yves March and and Romain Meffre. 

One thing that is striking to me is the fact that so many of the structures have just been left to rot for many years instead of being torn down.  It must be incredibly demoralizing for the remaining population.
