29 Most Eerie Photos of The Abandoned and Bankrupt City of Detroit

For decades Detroit stood as a testament to the might of American manufacturing and industry. The auto industry thrived in the city and the city thrived around it. Over time, the decay of the American automotive industry and outsourcing to foreign factories caused this once thriving city into decline. Now, the city sits in bankruptcy, properties falling into ruins and decay. The abandoned places of Detroit explored and photographed by Yves Manchand and Romain Meffre of Paris show the grandeur of the history of Detroit and at the same time expose the horror of the city’s financial disaster.

One of the most stunning photographs captured by this pair of urban explorers is in the vault of a failed Detroit bank. The security boxes tossed on the floor, slid open, and the decay showcase the state of the city. Detroit may rebound from disaster, but many of these abandoned buildings will never see use again.
