5 the toad Photos: Hard times in Detroit, where Eminem's house costs $1

Global Trading Building, photographed by David Defoe, aka The Toad.

Yahoo Homes assembled this slideshow of Detroit's hard times from Creative Commons photos on Flickr. We just wrote about the house on Dresden where Eminem lived, a few blocks south of 8 Mile Road. The Detroit house stars on two Eminem album covers (one forthcoming), and it's essentially free to a good owner. Go to our Spaces blog to read about Eminem's house: http://yhoo.it/yahoohomesspaces.
