After 27 years in suburban Pontiac, the Detroit Lions football team returned to downtown Detroit in 2010 and played at the new state-of-the-art Ford Field. When Detroit entered the 20th century, its population grew immensely and in 1910 it was the ninth largest city in the United States. It was the home of the American auto industry and the birthplace of Motown Records.
The number of Jews in Detroit reached 1.2 million, while the total population in Detroit increased by only 114%. When the Jews left in 1948, Detroit had an organized and recognizable Jewish presence for only a few years.
When Michigan was admitted to the Union in 1837 as the twenty-sixth state, Detroit had become a major subway station. Known simply as the Motor City, Detroit is the 18th largest metropolitan area in the United States, stretching over the banks of the Detroit River and near its port, which connects the city with Detroit, Michigan's largest city by population, and the state of Michigan. As Detroit grew, the country became a US transportation hub, connected by a series of railroads, bridges, roads, highways, railroads, and bridges. The Detroit - Grand River Bridge, the first of its kind in America, stretches for about 22 miles through the historic Delray neighborhood of Detroit and serves as a boundary to the Michigan State University campus and as a border crossing between Detroit and the historic Delray neighborhoods.

Detroit has lived through much of its three centuries of existence since it was founded in 1701 as the seat of its first city council, the City of Detroit. It became an industrial city, formed trade unions, served as a center for the nation's cookery industry, and established the first public school system in the United States and the Detroit Public Library. The city was also called the "Paris of the West," because the automotive sector, which included Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, and Packard, was well established.
In the 1990s, businesses left Detroit, and city leaders tried to build a Renaissance city. Mismanagement exacerbated the situation, leading to Detroit being the largest US city to file for bankruptcy in 2013. In July 2013, state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan asked a federal judge to put the city of Detroit under bankruptcy protection.
