New is a word familiar in Detroit. New restaurants, entertainment districts, retailers and businesses are everywhere. All this new stuff is a sign that Detroit is America's great comeback city - an undeniable "IT" place to visit with its own take on renewal that's inspiring.
Empty areas, once forgotten, are being redeveloped as parks, co-op gardens and flower farms.

And new creative start-ups now calling Detroit home are bringing young entrepreneurs and artist to the city, giving it an edgier and experimental feel.
