US 'Motor City' undergoes economic revival

Detroit hit hard by recession sees recovery with alternative entrepreneurial developments.

    One of the US cities hit hardest by the global downturn was its once mighty car-making capital, Detroit.

    But the city is now undergoing a transformation through alternative entrepreneurial developments after learning some lessons from the past.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from Detroit.
