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.

Any surviving information on Tally Hall (the food court-NOT the band)? http://www.detroityes.com/mb/showthread.php?19272-Any-surviving-information-on-Tally-Hall-(the-food-court-NOT-the-band)&goto=newpost Wed, 22 Oct 2014 17:38:43 GMT
I'm trying to find any old information (especially photos or literature-any folks got them, please pot them!) on an old childhood hang-out from the 1980's. It was a giant indoor complex around the Hunter's Square area of Orchard Lake Rd. in Farmington Hills . It had over twenty little restaurants (none of them fast food chains or chincy spots) tightly packed on all four sides, lots of tables and chairs, and nautical style bunting/flags decor filling up the topside. I'd say it was a food court, but I haven't seen a food court as cool as this place was, since.
I know Marvin Yagoda (Marvelous Marvin's Marvelous Museum) would be the go to guy on this, and I remember his first incarnations in the center of the place (when he just put in a few coin-op kiddie rides next to the store that sold Sanrio items). However, I'm interested in other folk's memories of, in, and around that place. I still remember the newspaper and T-shirt store in one corner, the Super Spud, the place that sold Italian Ices next to it, the Orient Express, and Harry's Coney Island more towards the center. The outside area winding in had a fudge shop and a small bookstore (an earlier version of Border's-remember that ill-fated chain?- was further on down the road).
Please, once again, I know they're a cool band paying a cool homage, but the internet is saturated with enough stuff about them. I'm only requesting info/photos/stories regarding the giant indoor foodcourt facility from the '80s.

Does anyone have or can anyone tell me where I can get photos of two Detroit businesses? Both were family businesses. Buyse's Bakery which was at 1460 Mack Ave near McClellan about 1920 to maybe 1940. Also, Devonshire Bakery at 16029 Mack Ave at Devonshire. Building is still there but would like a photo of when it was a bakery. Any help you can give or a story you can share would be great.

With the talk of the widening of I-75 and a new diverging diamond interchange in University, it made me wonder what the original design of this part of the freeway was, particularly the Chrysler interchange to exit/enter I-75. When you are exiting northbound onto University, there are large swaths of cement that look like they were used at some point for merging traffic. This is particularly noticable as you're exiting the freeway and you can see the MDOT electronic traffic sign. Another area where it appears as if the designs have changed is the overpass for Featherstone. There is more than enough room for an additional 2 lanes of traffic going under the bridge northbound, with more pavement extending out toward the M-59 entrance onto I-75 northbound.Name:  b.jpg

Good news for Detroit [Us] and good news for Detroit [Automakers - their more profitable guzzlers sell better]? Maybe not so good for the planet?

Is the fracking revolution maybe finally be having its effect? Not even the current Middle East turmoil is stopping the price slide. How does this affect you?

Hey wait. Here it is for $2.90.


Ooo... $2.88.

one of my biggest problems with midtown is the east/west streets going through it.

currently there are 2 (read: TWO) streets that you can drive on without turning that will connect you from West of the Lodge to East of I-75 (Warren and Mack/MLK). Who the hell thought this would be a good idea?

on top of that MANY of the east/west streets within midtown constantly are shifting north and south, and there is no flow from block to block

here are just a few examples of Canfield and Selden streets

A big problem is the DMC campus. They don't allow a single street to cut through it and it made basically a giant mega-block on the east side of midtown

Another problem on the east side of midtown seems to be those giant suburb-esque developments near brush park and the DMC

If midtown wants to be fully walkable it would be nice to get some four-way intersections and not all these awkward 3 way ones where you're shifting north and south just to go east or west.

rant over.
