Detroit's Urban Decay As Seen With Google Street View

Exeter between Seven Mile and Penrose from 2009 (above) up to 2013 (photos below)

Tumblr site GooBing Detroit uses Google's Street View archive to create dramatic visual comparisons of changes in American city streets. It's no surprise that the site's primary focus has been on the longtime ailing urban areas of Detroit, Michigan. These photos arguably provide more stark images than that of any magazine or news feature, in that they are random, unadulterated shots, photographed dispassionately, without a slant or point of view.

See the wealth of material that GooBing Detroit has compiled by visiting the website. Via io9.
