Photo tour: Abandoned Brewster projects like a mini-city of decaying red bricks

The storied, abandoned Brewster projects, which once offered¬†apartments to low-income Detroiters, including the families of Motown legends Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson, is an ugly symbol of the city’s struggles.

Rows of burned out townhouses and high-rise apartments are decaying, windowless and tagged with graffiti. Broken furniture, garbage and dead trees are strewn across the 30-acre ruins near downtown.

The nation’s first federal funded housing project for black people looms over 1-75 near downtown and historic Brush park.

Mayor Dave Bing announced Tuesday that the apartments will be demolished with federal funds.
