9781596299405: Lost Detroit: Stories Behind the Motor City's Majestic Ruins

Lost Detroit tells the stories behind 12 of the city's most beautiful, all-but-forgotten landmarks and of the people behind them, from the day they opened to the day they closed. While these buildings might stand as ghosts of the past today, their stories live on within these pages. The team behind BuildingsofDetroit.com brings you the memories of those who caught trains out of the majestic Michigan Central Station, necked with girlfriends in the balcony of the palatial Michigan Theatre, danced the night away at the Vanity Ballroom and kicked out the jams at the Grande Ballroom. As Detroit Free Press Architecture Critic John Gallagher said, the buildings in these pages held a central place in the story of Detroit's Auto Century. It was America's story, too. Detroiters lived, loved, toiled, played, celebrated and dreamed great dreams in these buildings and thereby helped shape a nation."

About the Author :

Dan Austin is a journalist at the Detroit Free Press and a historian of the city's landmarks. He began researching and writing about Detroit's architectural wonders in 2006. His first book, Lost Detroit: Stories Behind the Motor City's Majestic Ruins, "? tells the stories behind the boarded-up windows of Detroit's most spectacular abandoned buildings. He runs HistoricDetroit.org."

Review :

"Every building in Detroit has a story." And, thankfully, Dan Austin and Sean Doerr are the storytellers. ... This amazing book tells the tales of 12 of Detroit's most stately structures.
--Time magazine's Detroit Blog

"Every chapter attempts to tug on the hearts of its readers with narratives brief enough to hold readers' attention, but long enough to explain the journey."
--The South End

Of Dan Austin, "a colleague calls him encyclopedic." --Michigannow.org

With Detroit's buildings, "some is gorgeously intact, some isn't. But the duo shows equal passion for all of it." --Model D

"I was absolutely glued to the book. Glued. It captures the spirit of so many of Detroit's buildings." --DetroitLives.org
