Detroit and its metropolitan area have always been a great place to work, live, and visit. Since its founding over 300 years ago, Detroit has grown into one of the largest cities in the nation, with a metropolitan area population of about 4.5 million people. After difficult years in the 1970s and many failed attempts in the 1980s, the region is currently undergoing a renaissance. Downtown Detroit’s development boom was most recently marked by the internationally acclaimed Superbowl XL.
With educational attractions like the Detroit Institute of Art, Holocaust Memorial Center, Charles H. Wright African American History Museum, Arab American National Museum, Detroit Zoo, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Michigan Opera, and Cranbrook Institute, Detroit offers an incredible cultural experience.
Detroit offers a full roster of top-tier athletic teams, including the ten-time Stanley cup winning Detroit Red Wings, four-time World Series winning Detroit Tigers, three-time NBA Champion Detroit Pistons, and four-time NFL Champion Detroit Lions.
Numerous landmark buildings adorn the downtown skyline like the Albert Kahn designed buildings like the Fisher Building, River Rouge Plant, Cadillac Place, Detroit News Building, Bonstelle Theater and First National Building and the metropolitan area, including the Minoru Yamasaki designed Temple Beth El; the Percival-Goodman designed Shaarey-Zedek Synagogue; and Temple Israel, one of the largest Reform synagogues in the nation.
