DETROIT (WXYZ) — The CEO of the Downtown Detroit Partnership, Eric B. Larson, narrated a video reflecting the changes since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the city.

"Earlier this year, Downtown Detroit was a vibrant place, bustling with people and activity and, in an instant, Detroit and the nation quieted," the organization wrote in a social post. "COVID-19 may have temporarily postponed those plans, but we have high hopes for the future of our city. Today, the Downtown Detroit Partnership is previewing a new video below that captures the many ways our community has banded together in a time of unprecedented change. #DetroitTogether."
