“Chin Up, Detroit”

Man, you know your city must be circling the drain when you get a patronizing editorial like this from the Rust Belt’s paper of record.

I like Buffalo, I really do. But I don’t think we’re in a position to tell anyone what it’s like to recover.

    Meanwhile, here in the Rodney Dangerfield of coastal cities, you can still buy a rowhome in the high 5 figures. And folks from Philly to Beantown, and in D.C., shake their heads in amazement.

    Prices are creeping up pretty steadily in my neighborhood. I should have bought the duplex next door when I had the chance.

    Prices took a pretty sharp dive here as a result of the Great Recession. Homes that were selling for 400,000- 500,000 are around 250,000- 300,000 now.
