Does anyone know what happened to the mini golf course that used to be on the corner of Dalzelle and 14th Street? The Imagination Station seems to be on the way out as well, following the fires, and I know that they were related projects.

I tried to contact Billy's father, Mourad Berreni, via FaceBook but I got no reply (so far). Does anyone have further information on the courtcase or outcome of this murder trial? Billy was robbed and killed at the Brewsters in July 2013. It might not have gone to trial yet.

I want to send out a special Happy Thanksgiving Day shoutout to most of the DetroitYes family.

I hope everyone will have a marvelous day and NO family quarrels. LOL.

Crumbled will be spending this T-Bird Day with extended family and he expects to stuff his face with more food than he ever thought possible.

If you don't mind, please check in with the D-Yes family and let us know where you'll be spending T-Bird Day.

Extreme weather events, sea level rise,
shifting precipitation patterns and temperature variability,
all intensified by climate change, have significant implications
for the sustainability of the water sector.
By planning for, assessing and adapting to these challenges,
the water sector can fulfill their public health and
environmental missions
and begin the process of becoming climate ready.

How does the finished product look? The picture in Crains really doesn't show much.

I assume its concrete where the rail is, but asphalt on the street creating a contrast.

I was photographing the Fisher 21 Plant and spotted another building in the distance (seen here) - I guess it's near the corner of Picquette and Russell. Does anyone know anything about the building - its name or history? I think it might be a storage facility nowadays. Comments appreciated.

I think there was a thread about this a couple of years ago. They're tearing up Woodward for the M1, and looks like someone decided to salvage a unique piece of our history. Yes, the last picture looks like a butthole. Sorry, grow up.

Quote:

nyt: "Demonstrations also played out across the country, including in Atlanta; Los Angeles; New York; Oakland, Calif.; and Philadelphia."
No reports in the paper of demonstrations in Detroit. The freep reported 15 people at the Levin courthouse, then had to go to Ann Arbor to find a gathering of 40 students.

Why is Detroit not front & center on this?

What can Detroit do to prevent a future incident like this?

Is DPD any longer viewed as an occupying force by the residents, as it was in '67? If not, what did Detroit do to bring police and residents together and onto the same side.

Or is the next Malice Green just around the corner wherein protesters see prosecution of individual police officers as the resolution for feelings of social injustice?

I would like to know if there's anything you want me to added on my site. Right now, all I have on there is a list of the locations Ames had in Michigan, which is very little.

Good evening. Since I believe some of the smarter, more intelligent Detroiters linger on here and always have good advice, I figure I would ask. I am currently living in Grosse Pointe Park, want to stay, but finding a house in my price range is kinda tough. Everyday I drive past East English Village (EEV) and I am quite curious. I have asked around and I get mixed signals, some people love, some people say stay away. What do you guys think? Is EEV a good spot? If so where should I look? I have been seeing a lot of property in the village on the auction sites which makes me think that it could be a desirable neighborhood soon. Any help is appreciated.
