This short film combines the poetry of Philip Levine and film shot by filmmaker Brian Kaufman. It is an excerpt from a feature-length film of the Detroit Packard Automotive Plant.

It appears that demolition and redevelopment is still in the planning stages.

Abandonment. Decay. Forgotten people. Mega-engineering. Damaged lives. Damaged places. A bumpy graph of changing economics.

Here are some photographs of abandoned places. You decide whether they give you goosebumps.  Maybe some of them (Orpheum Theater)—at night and alone!
