It was always obvious to me that the GAR Building (close to Downtown, Midtown, Foxtown and entertainment venues) was in an ideal location and a manageable re-furb at the same time.

For those of you that fondly remember the Lincoln Park Shopping Center, we finally have an inside look on what the deteriorating strip complex looks like today.

Nicholas Eckhart of Dead and Dying Retail came to Metro Detroit earlier this year and shot interior and exterior photos of every storefront in the LPSC. It's pretty creepy to see how bad the LPSC has become now, compared to it's glory days.

Below is a sampling of these.

The interior of the Star Theater, which closed in 2003.


The old Harmony House.


The exterior of the former Farmer Jack.

Downton Abbey http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19920-Downton-Abbey&goto=newpost Mon, 02 Mar 2015 22:59:37 GMT
Just out of curiosity, how many of you have followed "Downton Abby" on PBS? Season five ended yesterday, with a lot of loose ends wrapped up. There will be a sixth (and likely, final) season starting in January.

Downton Abbey is set in the early 20th century in an aristrocratic family line. It's basically an Edwardian Soap Opera, but the acting (I think) is superb, the period costumes are perfect, and the settings are awesome.

Perhaps Gazhekwe could help with this question, and others that may arise. A friend leased a small cottage at Walpole Island First Nation in the 1980s, on the perimeter road, looking out at the shipping channel. He would often see an older man, maybe 70 years old, walk just past the cottage and look into the yard behind the cottage, where an old dwelling once stood. Parts of the foundation and fireplace could be seen in the shrubs and tall grass there. He would pause about 30 seconds to a minute, then retrace his route in the direction he came from.
One Friday, when my friend arrived for a weekend stay, he noticed a half circle of stones, the open part of the circle facing the river, with a clam shell in the middle. Not wanting to disturb this, he left that area of the lawn uncut for the rest of the summer. In early November, when he winterized and boarded up the cottage, my friend noticed that the stones and shell were gone.
Is this a well known practice? Any comments?

Pictured below is the Trumbull street DPD station which was built in 1900. On the southeast corner of Michigan and Trumbull. It served as the Second Precinct station until mid-1930 when it was demolished to make way for the widening of Michigan Avenue. Second photo shows the removal process. When the building was removed, the second precinct moved temporarily into a warehouse at National (now Cochrane) and Pine. Temporary proved to be ten years until the new second precinct station at 2801 W. Vernor (at 20th) was opened in 1947. It, in turn, was closed during the reconfiguration of the DPD in the 90s.

Hi everyone,

Long time lurker, occasional poster. I was driving through the city yesterday, and took a close look at the current streetlight upgrade happening. I am amazed at how fast this upgrade is happening. That being said, some of those old streetlights had been up for a looong time. They had some really cool designs. I hate to see them go in the scrap pile. Does anybody know what happens to them? Is there a yard somewhere that they are dumped/stored at? I called the public lighting commission, and got nowhere. Any ideas?

In this article, Geoffrey Fieger cites the clubs, "history of racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism". Correct me if I'm wrong, but why would he even entertain the thought of joining this club? Any ideas?

Um, this new action should be a check against the big ISP's, by the benevolent government. Joy. Against the current 'non-neutrality' (what does that really mean?) Hah! That's all folks! Just a bit of control of the 'media'...:rolleyes:...

Why big tech isn't celebrating its big victory on net neutrality


Google and friends aren’t celebrating the big news out of the FCC today.
Or at least, not publicly.

http://fortune.com/2015/02/26/big-tech-net-neutrality/

Not long ago, Google execs would have been popping champagne corks over today’s big news from the Federal Communications Commission. The agency’s 3-2 vote to strictly regulate broadband Internet fulfilled a long-shot push by the company and its allies that started nearly a decade ago.

Indeed, the FCC decision marked a stinging defeat for telecoms like Comcast and AT&T, among the most entrenched and moneyed lobbying forces in Washington. (see link above for full article)
