United States smoking ban
The city and suburb of Detroit, Michigan


Detroit, Michigan

Detroit is the largest city in Michigan, and the seat of Wayne Country. It is located north of Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
The city is well known as the world's traditional automotive center, with a nickname of the Moter City. In2008,
Detroit ranked as the eleventh the most populous city, with about 912,000 residents. At its peak in 1950, the city
was fourth largest in the United States. However, afterwards a major shift of population was occurred to the suburbs.

Detroit and the surrounding region constitute a major manufacturing center, most notably as home to the Big Three
automobile companies, General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler. The city is an important center for global trade with large
international law firms having their offices in both Detroit and Windsor.

Although crime has declined significantly since the 1970s, the city had the sixth highest number of violent crimes
among the twenty-five largest US cities in 2007. This rate was declined to 11 percent in 2008, though Wayne County
Prosecutor questions the finding.

デトロイトは南北をエリー湖とヒューロン湖に挟まれており、東のカナダ、ウィンザー市とトンネルと橋(Ambassador Bridge,
Detroit-Windsor Tunnel)で結ばれている。失業率が高く、貧困層を抱えている。自動車産業の中心都市である。GMがテナント
として利用している、大規模なルネッサンスセンターは都市全体の再生には結びつかず、空洞化しており、荒廃したままのところが
多い。筆者はデトロイトのダウンタウンで、高速道路をUターンするために街中に入ったが、人気もなく不気味な気配を感じ、
犯罪に巻き込まれないように急いでその場を立ち去った。
