With the limited job market, poverty gripped the city and crime began to rise as people resorted to criminal activities to make ends meet. Then add drugs into the mix (at one point, 70% of all homicides in Detroit were drug related), plus political corruption (Kwame Kilpatrick -D) and you get the Detroit we have today.
Gary, Indiana is another good example with the decline in steel manufacturing, along with Pittsburgh, PA, etc
In Australia we have different "cities" within a city from a technical standpoint, (I live in Melbourne, but technically my local council is the City of Maroondah - you've never heard of it) but you don't get people take it as actually different places!
