The Decline of Detroit in Five Maps

The Decline of Detroit in Five Maps | notizie dal mondo | Scoop.it

"Detroit was once the nation’s fourth most-populous city. Today, it became the largest American city to file for bankruptcy."


"And no discussion of Detroit is complete without mention of race and segregation. In 1950, when Detroit's population was at its peak, the city was 82 percent white. After decades of white flight, that number is reversed: the city is now 82 percent black and 10 percent white. On the map below, Detroit's city limits are obvious—especially its northern boundary, along the infamous 'Eight Mile Road.'"

This is an intereseting technique to demonstrate population dynamics across time - wondering what an Indigenous population map of Brisbane during the last 30 years would look like ...

I like the article because once I got to the New York Times site, I could see my city's stats.

I did not think that they showed the time aspect very clearly. I would have like to see more data from 1950 or any data before 2005. The article talks about the decline from the 50's but does not show much from that time period.
