Detroit Readying For A Renaissance? Micki Maynard Discusses City's Future

Do you think Detroit is gearing up for another renaissance?

Former New York Times Detroit bureau chief Micki Maynard appeared on HuffPostLive Monday to talk about the city's potential, even as Detroit's financial fate lies in the hands of a judge in bankruptcy court.

Paradoxically, Maynard suggests that all of the news regarding Detroit's financial crisis might even help.

"It's almost as if city's fortunes get worse ... and there's more interest in the city than ever," she tells HuffPostLive.

Watch the video above to hear Maynard's take on how Detroit is changing, and what could lie ahead for the Motor City.
