Post Super Bowl Detroit

Writers at Slate say that the Super Bowl ball was in many ways dropped by Detroit and much of the its potential was squandered. The reasons why have a lot to do with the lack of accomodations downtown.
Also, from this article, it appears that the fantastic art at the United Artists Building has been removed.
From Slate:
Graffiti artists have also transformed the windows of the abandoned United Artists building into stained-glass paintings that were recently featured on the cover of Preservation magazine. In December, however, the paintings were removed as part of an effort to relieve blight. Super Bowl attendees who pass the building will now see just another empty structure.
