stay away from River Rouge

The city is in the industrial area of Detroit. As such, it is even worse than Gary, Indiana as far as industrial stench, pollution, waste, and toxic environment. The neighborhoods which are left are a dingy gray with little able to grow or thrive. The children in the blighted neighborhoods are facing a lifetime of health problems and the cancer rate among the residents is sky high. The entire area as far as air quality makes Beijing’s industrial area look like a national forest by comparison. I-75 that goes thru the area is raised 35 feet above the ground due to the filth, crime, and pollution. The only thing thriving are the steel mills and refineries which are intermixed with the residential areas.
