Is it just me, or were there a handful of backhanded insults aimed at Detroit in this piece? Brittain's comment especially irked me: "I go down for games and bars, but for the average person, why would you go?"

I've never considered myself "average", per se, but I made a conscious decision to live in downtown Detroit after returning to the area to pursue my graduate studies at Michigan. It sounds like this group of individuals you've amassed suffers from the same lack of information regarding amenities, housing, etc. available in Detroit as the majority of the national population.

Don't get me wrong: their presence here is definitely welcome. But their perspective on Detroit as only a city for occasional entertainment value undermines the many successful young professionals that have called the city home for now.
