Don't forget about Detroit.

Mies van der Rohe Lafayette Park - Homes - Dwell
Detroit, most recently known only for its decline, its exciting to see such a nice write up in Dwell. As much as most of the sad rumors hold true, there is still a depth and beauty to this city. For example, Lafayette Park, home to one of the most beautiful townhouse complexes designed by Mies van der Rohe. A truly gorgeous reminder of a once great city with style.

"Within a sprawling, decentralized city that has suffered near-disastrous decline, this racially and economically diverse enclave just northeast of downtown has not only aged gracefully but today flourishes with new life." ~Sam Grawe // Dwell Magazine

Detroit will always be home.
