Opened on November 1, 1955, with the ribbon cutting by Mayor Louis Miriani (may his tax-evading bones rest in peace), and ripped apart in October, 2014. Oh, well.
I was there as a police cadet the day after it opened. All the old timers had put in transfers to the 'new' station, resulting with guys having to have 10 or 12 years to work a car. The rest walked beats.

I was reading the Wikipedia entry for Center Line and it claimed the French named it Center Line because it was the middle of three Potowatomi trails from Fort Detroit to northern trading posts. Were roads eventually built over these trails? How far out did these trails extend? Did these trails extend all the way through the lower UP? I know that Moravian was a trail/road that went deep into the wilderness, but I didn't think any other trails went that far out.

Yea, I know it's Wikipedia, but it was taken from a prtty good book written by Walter Romig.

the big benefits the “gaming industry” was supposed to deliver hasn’t worked out very well for atlantic city. that didn’t stop this author for slamming detroit in the title of this piece.

i believe dan gilbert is having a bit more success with his properties and reinvesting back into the communities ( detroit, cleveland, cincinnati ) than the trumps, etc did in atlantic city. but so much of the surrounding story ( civic corruption, poverty, broken promises ) seems all too familiar.

Do you have any idea how police cars in the suburban tri-county area looked like from the time Adam-12 was still airing new episodes through 2000? Here's a Sketchup recreation of what Wyandotte's probably appeared in the late 1980's, though it may be off from the actual depiction: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/mod...43a47695139d26

And here's a photo of one from Dearborn Heights during that same era:


Plus, in 1989, Melvindale's units were white with a blue strip (with some red as well) as seen in a Youtube video of a 1989 WJBK newscast (which had Sherri Margolis as one of the anchors and featured a report on the Pistons winning game two of that year's NBA Finals as well).

Photos are recommended if available.

The employees were told today. Remember, this is the company that once paid Kwame a hefty salary. Well, apparently the company has fallen on hard times since going public a year ago. The move is supposed to save them nearly half a million a year. I guess there were no vacant spaces in one of Mr. Gilbert's buildings for close to the same price as the space Covisint found in The Travelers Towers in Southfield.

Eliminate it , banish it, or is the flavor of the local neighborhood streets ?

What Would Really Be Great To Have on Merchants Row... http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19278-What-Would-Really-Be-Great-To-Have-on-Merchants-Row&goto=newpost Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:48:23 GMT
A flagship, multi-level Dillards store!!!

Given that there no Dillards stores anywhere within an hour's drive of Metro Detroit (or anywhere in Michigan), it would likely attract customers from all over the region & state if it's unique enough. It can be a part of the Hudson Block development with frontage along Woodward.

It would also be an anchor store I think downtown needs to kick off its retail renaissance that's been discussed.

Given the success of Moosejaw and John Varvados' store opening on Merchants Row, I think now it could very well work.

If anyone happens to read this site and works closely with Dan Gilbert, perhaps this is something that can suggested to the planners and looked into.

SMART just received three more hybrid buses! http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19276-SMART-just-received-three-more-hybrid-buses!&goto=newpost Wed, 22 Oct 2014 23:37:44 GMT
Today, SMART has added three brand-new hybrid buses to it's fleet. One of them, #3009, is painted in U-M colors and was sighted this morning at the Oakland Terminal. These buses are identical to the three that were delivered last year and the initial three that arrived in 2011. First heard about this on another forum I'm on.

And in other SMART news, Lathrup Village is now an opt-in community again as of October 13th.
