Yes I still remember visiting friends in Windsor back when.As we headed towards the Ambassador bridge for my first time, I was amazed at how the Detroit's skyline seemed to blend into Windsor's as if it was one city. Even during the daytime when the river was hidden from view.

Yes, from certain parts of DT Windsor, Detroit's skyline blends into Windsor's skyline, making you feel that you are in a much larger city than 350,000! only when you get down to the riverfront do you realize it's a different city!

This is downtown Windsor but those big buildings at the end of the view corridor; that's Detroit. Quite the optical illusion!
