In 1900, Detroit had a population of 285,000 people, making it the thirteenth-largest city in the U.S.[6] Over the following decades, the growth of the automobile industry, including affiliated activities such as parts and tooling manufacturing, came to dwarf all other manufacturing in the city.

These agents have eyes on almost every corner of downtown Detroit and coordinate public safety and monitor legal infractions in partnership with Wayne State University’s private police agency and Detroit’s own police force. The government was receiving less revenue from taxpayers residing in the city which led to more foreclosures and overall unemployment, eventually culminating in the bankruptcy of 2013. These range from its old (but non-descript) housing stock; to its non-cohesive neighborhoods; to its car-oriented road design. Poverty, crime, shootings, drugs and urban blight in Detroit are ongoing problems. Therefore, the anti-public housing and pro-homeownership sentiment of Albert Cobo garnered immense support from neighborhood associations that served an indispensable role in the overwhelming victory of Cobo over Edwards for mayor of Detroit.[38]. [35] Therefore, the repealing of restrictive covenants resulted in neighborhood associations relying on extralegal subversions of restrictive covenants to alternatively stunt Black residential integration.

This segregationist pattern, said Mogk, continues, and may not organically reverse itself. The survivors of the decline, especially whites, fled the cities to pursue new dreams in the suburbs.

Detroit's losses went a hell of a lot deeper than the immediate toll of lives and buildings. [114] In addition to these efforts to revitalize Detroit’s social atmosphere, Gilbert and Quicken Loans have also cultivated a strong and diverse workforce within Detroit by incentivizing employees to live in Midtown and offering subsidies and loans.
