Brooklyn lost its whole sense of adventure for me.

I see Detroit becoming like Berlin just after the wall came down.

You can find your purpose in Detroit, which is nearly impossible to do these days in New York.

What has surprised me is how Detroit has allowed me to mature.

I came here thinking I might help save Detroit, and instead it has saved me.

What else is there to say?

Gentrification brings slow-drip coffee, pedigree pork and almond milk, but it also brings hyper-policing.

Oh, haha, right.
