Downright fascinating and overly disturbing, the GooBing Detroit website collects online images showing the rapid deterioration of Detroit's neighbourhoods: from pristine houses and manicured lawns all the way to nature taking over their burnt remains. Above, a screenshot from the site showing the gradual disintegration over time. And if you're wondering why so many boats litter the streets of Detroit, the video above may shed a clue.
