Unsure if this is the right place to post this. Was wondering if Detroit is still fairly crime-ridden? I don't feel like getting shot or stabbed over the $20 in my pocket. I'd likely be train-hopping in on Norfolk Southern into the Dearborn or Melvindale area. Thanks in advance!

Yes absolutely, but as with most places your mileage may vary depending on where you go and what time you are there. Stay away from the Gratiot corridor though, it's just plain bad news to be in that area. Good luck and be safe.
With gratitude, -Ian

Thank you Ian, I appreciate your input. I might stay near the Dearborn area temporarily. Might go up to Troy and hang out up there.

Goal

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
