Anthony Bourdain on Detroit

Huge fan of, the sometimes controversial former-junkie-turned-tv-personality-slash-writer, Anthony Bourdain. He wrote recently about his journey to Detroit.

I thought i'd highlight some interesting quotes from his piece:

Bourdain on Detroit and America:

Detroit isn’t just a national treasure. It IS America. And wherever you may live, you wouldn’t be there—and wouldn’t be who you are in the same way—without Detroit.

Bourdain on comparing Detroit to New Orleans:

Looking back, if I were to compare Detroit’s mentality to any other city, I’d look to New Orleans. Both city’s hardcore, born and bred “ain’t never leaving” home teams refuse to even consider living anywhere else—no matter what happens. It takes a special breed.

I do recommend reading the tumblr post.
