Trying to make contact with anyone that worked with him from 1954 through 1988 after leaving the US Navy during WWII we enjoyed Burroughs farms in Brighton Mich, he worked at the Plymouth plant, tireman and others. I’m writing a book about his life and 34 years at Burroughs was a huge positive part for him and his family. Might you have worked at the aforementioned Burroughs locations or know someone?

Hi All,

I'm new to DetroitYes, but not Detroit. Born, raised and educated in the City. Just recently, last summer, moved back to the City. Hubby & I bought a 1924 tudor and we're renovating. I stumbled across this site while looking for old pictures of the Boston-Edison District and surrounding neighborhoods. I'm looking forward to being a part of this team. Val:)

Dear Forum Pontificators,

While the Michigan Theater has - over time - become the film communities favorite parking deck, it's still just a hollowed out parking facility. Shame. And I fear the same fate is in store for the United Artists. Double shame. But in this age of miracles which is downtown/midtown Detroit, I suspect either auditorium or both could be reclaimed and made whole once again, no? I mean if money were no object. So, my question to you forum phenoms is this: Which theater would you reclaim and why? With the caveat of having to replicate the historical architecture of each theater as accurately and completely as possible. Now, as far as a need for another renovated theater palace - there may not be a market for such a property, but if you resurrect it, will they not come? My money would be on the Michigan (though my heart may be with the UA).

Upon announcing additional distribution center in SE WI Milwaukee's mayor has penned an op-ed to Jeff Bezos. I wonder how Bezos would respond?

Big corporations are now so intertwined with politics via Super PAC's and Citizens United that we now have to look to CEO's to guide social change (wtf, yikes).

FYI, Jeff Bezos and the Walton Family are each worth approx $150 Billion. Remember to vote in Nov.

Quote:

A noticeable exception to the low unemployment rate, unfortunately, is the still high unemployment rate in communities of color. Since housing patterns are so segregated in southeastern Wisconsin, unemployment is highly concentrated in the city of Milwaukee.

That’s why we have an employment “geography gap” as well as a skills gap. It’s also why now, more than at any other time in our recent history, it is imperative that corporate America, our local business community, state and local government focus on addressing racial disparities and the geography gap.

If we don’t address unemployment in communities of color when unemployment is low, when will we do it? Or, have leaders just given up on locating jobs in central cities?

Median sale price of City of Detroit houses have risen 41% since this time last year and 275% over the last five years. The median price of $38K is the skew, but if you're an investor, its percentages that matter and savvy investors are jumping in and driving those even more. Good news for Detroit tax collections, not so much for prospective home buyers as seen in this quote from today's Crains.

"The crazy thing about Detroit is, I don't think a lot of people understand how much international investment there is in the city in the residential market," Evans [a real estate agent] said. "They are pretty much using the Detroit (residential) real estate market as an investment vehicle. Purchasing a home here ... versus buying a similar home in California might be a difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars. As the market continues to gain in value, they can make a substantial profit."

Hi Everyone!
I'm new to this site but not to Detroit where I was born, educated and lived most of my life. I am putting together a book for the History Press on the life and times of residents of West Eight Mile, including Royal Oak Township. I want to discuss how issues of housing (and the infamous Birwood Wall), employment, transportation, recreation, healthcare, crime, digital redlining, and other issues impacted the community from about 1920 going forward. There's a lot there, and I am hoping I did not bite off more than i can chew. There are pics available at the Burton Historical wing at the main library, but they are still asking $50 a pop. And there's the Reuther at WSU and, of course, the Library of Congress. Anyone willing to share any anecdotes or pictures--well, I would be eternally in your debt, and would even be willing to buy you a pop!

Detroit is an impoverished area where median income is at $24,000.
Almost half of Detroit’s working-age residents aren’t even looking for a job
— at 53.4 percent, it's
the lowest workforce participation rate in the nation
and a symptom of poverty and poor educational attainment.
Then you have the "other" part of population becoming retired in next few years.

The horizontal elevator to nowhere!

Michigan Capitol Confidential, March 29, 2018

“The Detroit People Mover monorail system downtown lost an average of $9.89 on every trip it provided in 2016. The cost per trip was $10.51 and the average fare was 62 cents, according to a website that tracks transportation data.”

How much of a loss should the taxpayer be expected to pay for a public transportation system? And what is the expected loss that the Q Line is projected to carry over its life span?

Buddy Pizza Owners List Original Restaurant Building for $1.5M
The iconic Detroit-based chain wants to continue operating in the building under a new owner
By Brenna Houck on July 12, 2018 2:37 pm


Buddy’s started serving Detroit-style pizza in the 1946. Michelle and Chris Gerard
The owners of Buddy’s Pizza — Detroit’s iconic square pizza slinger — have listed the chain’s original Conant Street building for sale for $1.5 million as the chain prepares for a major expansion. The property originally appeared on Loopnet in June seeking a sale-leaseback, an arrangement in which Buddy’s would continue to operate the Detroit restaurant as normal. Buddy’s would lease the property from the buyer and cover all the costs associated with the building and business.


Reached by Eater, Buddy’s confirmed that it has listed the property for sale and that business is still strong. “All Buddy’s locations are doing well and will remain open,” the company said in a statement. The popular Southeast Michigan pizza chain announced plans to expand beyond Michigan’s borders in January and received an undisclosed investment to “recapitalize” the business. Listing the original Detroit property is another step in the company’s efforts to raise money for that expansion.

“Buddy’s is exploring a sale of certain owned real estate properties in an effort to focus resources on managing existing stores and opening new Buddy’s Pizza locations,” the restaurant group said. “Our owners and leadership are excited to expand the brand throughout the Midwest and believe focusing our operations will allow us to better deliver memorable experiences to our guests and serve the communities in which we operate.”

Under the terms of the sale-leaseback agreement, Buddy’s would have a 20-year lease on the 3,571-square-foot property with a base rent of $86,250 a year and 10 percent rent increases every 5 years. Buddy’s does not have plans to list other properties at this time, according to a representative for the chain.


Buddy’s has been slowly growing its locations over the years and currently operates 12 restaurants in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor. A new outpost at the Detroit Zoo is poised to open very soon and in April there were rumors the company was in talks to open inside the former Angelina Italian Bistro space.

https://www.freep.com/story/entertai...ils/769567002/

I think that this restaurant review of Empire Kitchen is highly troubling on at least a couple of levels.

First, it’s just disappointing that this review comes from the Freep’s reviewer, Mark Kurlyandchik, who is one of the best journalists they’ve hired in the past few years. His sharp, creative and insightful reporting on the region’s burgeoning food scene shines in comparison with most other local food writers’ by-the-numbers reviews.

Second, why savage a restaurant that is doing nothing but competently, if perhaps uninspiringly, executing a theme that it is being completely honest about? Kurlyandchik found some dishes disappointing but he never claimed that the kitchen produced routinely awful food. He didn’t claim that it was cynically overcharging its patrons. Rather, a close read of the article discloses that Kurlyandchik seems to be mightily offended at some sort of inauthenticity that he perceives has descended upon Midtown. So okay. Write about that. Don’t put the hard work and savings of small business-people at risk simply because you think that they should have attempted a restaurant theme that wasn’t so “safe.” What kind of hubris is that? Amazingly, the Freep website front page headline writer doubles down by cravenly generating clicks with the statement that the restaurant should be “avoided.” The whole article is really unfair. It draws into question Freep editorial oversight and the writer’s ethics. I hope Empire Kitchen isn’t crippled by this article. I haven’t been there but I’m going to go now.
