Michigan Central Station is a defining example of Detroit's urban decay. The building was built in 1913, and was the tallest railroad station in the world at 230 feet (18 stories). As air travel and auto usage overtook rail transit in the US, the usage dwindled, and the last train to use MCS was in 1988. The building has been completely unused since that date. Films such as Naqoyqatsi and Transformers have used the building as a symbol of blight and decay. (Zach Fein)
