In this Sept. 19, 2013 photo, a man walks past an empty lot north of the city of Detroit where a proposed hockey arena and retail development is planned. Detroit may be too broke to pay its bills, but it’s still thinking big. As the debt-ridden city moves through bankruptcy proceedings, local and state leaders are backing plans to build a new hockey arena and streetcar line. The developments would cost $800 million and bet at least $300 million in future tax revenues to attract people to a city that residents have been fleeing for 60 years. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
