Detroit, MI Skyline Pictures

Detroit skyline pictures show a region of four to five million residents, and a hub of transportation and industry in Michigan. Historically, it was once in the top five most populated cities in the U.S., though Detroit skyline pictures showcasing city construction did not always reflect this boom in population like is evident in Chicago or New York City.

If you've heard the phrase "Motown," then you're familiar with the history of Detroit's nightlife during the 1940s. Detroit is one of many major U.S. metropolises with a significant waterfront, and Detroit skyline pictures make use of this feature, known as the Detroit River. The traffic on this river alone, often seen packed along the shore in Detroit skyline pictures, is extremely busy and congested for U.S. internal waterways.

Detroit skyline pictures show many of the city's iconic buildings situated in close proximity to the Detroit River. One Detroit Center was erected in 1993, reaching 619 feet in height. This was the tallest building in any Detroit skyline pictures until it was surpassed by the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. This building's sheer size in Detroit skyline pictures doesn't allow for much of a rival in presence, its massive footprint making quite the dent in Detroit images and towering on the riverfront as well. Overall however, the city offers many different architectural styles spread along the river, and so Detroit skyline pictures feature a unique and historical glance at American architecture. Art Deco and Postmodern styles are two of many types of construction that can be seen in Detroit skyline panoramas.

You will also notice in Detroit skyline pictures the presence of Fox Theater and the Detroit Institute of Arts. If you are a fan of the Red Wings, Joe Louis Arena is also visible in Detroit skyline panoramic pictures. Furthermore, if you also happen to be familiar with Ford Motor Company or Walter Chrysler, you might also know that Detroit grew to have the status of the automotive capital of the world. This renowned city's East Riverfront also extends its way toward Grosse Point, another historically common reference.

Fans of Detroit skyline pictures are also probably familiar with the city's demographics. While it doesn't impact Detroit skyline picture directly, it is without a doubt the city with the highest African American population in the U.S., well over 80%. This was historically due to the Great Migration from 1910 to 1930, of which the increase in population most certainly affected any Detroit skyline picture we now see today.

Other historic buildings of note in Detroit skyline pictures are densely concentrated in Downtown, Midtown, and New Center. Only a stone's throw away and visible in Detroit skyline pictures is Windsor, Ontario, just across the Detroit River. This almost makes Detroit skyline pictures a 2-for-1 photograph, representing a divided by country, yet seemingly merged cities.

Also, if you find yourself an encyclopedia of sports statistics, you can bet that many records were set in arenas and fields seen within Detroit skyline pictures. Being one of the 13 cities that are home to all four major sports team types, many records in all areas have come pouring out of Detroit. A home to diversity, automotive industry, and sports for everyone, take a moment to appreciate all that Detroit skyline pictures truly offer the viewer.
