DETROIT (WKZO) -- The future for the City of Detroit is "remarkably bright" according to Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr.  He spoke to business leaders at the Downtown Detroit Partnership gathering Wednesday and said he sees similarities between Detroit, Washington D.C., and Miami.

The nation's capital faced serious financial problems in the 1990s while Miami struggled in the 1980s and Orr says both cities are now thriving.  Orr pointed to the new bridge to Canada, the M1 Rail Project, and the planned hockey arena and development in downtown Detroit as examples of how the city can rebound.
