Billboards say you should move to Detroit, so here's what you can rent there

Billboards have popped up in Bushwick, Soho and Midtown exhorting locals to go west (till they reach I-75 in Michigan, that is) and work for a poised-to-launch Thai restaurant, Katoi, according to Business Insider. It’s a ballsy PR move for the eatery, considering it can’t possibly employ everyone who may be seeking employment, but hey, we’re biting.
So, we got to thinking: How much cheaper would it be for a Bushwick resident to up stakes and settle in Detroit? And what type of housing would they find there? According to MNS Real Estate’s February 2015 rental report, the average one-bedroom in Bushwick runs $1,991 a month.
