    In 1982, he performed at CMU/Finch Fieldhouse in Mt. Pleasant. As I recall, the night before the concert, he was hanging out at one of the local bars having a few drinks and mingling. Just one of the...

    Thanks, ILKSGAMI. "Total height" of 825 seems pretty clear; but, explain the structure and elevation numbers to me, if you can.

    Oh, that's dating yourself, 401Don. I remember him in the 70's, but listened more often in the 80's when I (finally) finished my education and began working for a living. Nothing like starting out...

    Thank you, townonenorth. I look forward to watching this video. Loved J.P. He reminds me of the days when Detroit was able to attract the high level talent of a top-10 radio and television market.

    Even back in the 1970's, there were many people living in Port Huron who worked in and around Detroit. In the mornings, I-94 West had a surprising amount of traffic, relatively speaking, heading...

    That is certainly a hot button issue in cities like Los Angeles, where single family zoning gets blamed for a range of perceived social ills. But, how is that an issue in Detroit? Depending on the...

    Both of those posts are interesting and good information, Dave. Thanks for posting, and I would love to see photos from that era, as well.

    Wasn't loved by many? He was loved enough to be serving his seventh term as County Exec. I didn't always agree with Patterson, and often was frustrated by his anti-regional rhetoric and policies;...

    How's that going, Seven&wyo? What are your impressions of the changes on Livernois and the potential for further develop east and west on 7 Mile?

    In New York, several prominent buildings have addresses on high profile streets, even though the buildings are not actually located on those streets. For example, "432 Park Avenue" is a super-tall...

    I used to park in the Grand Circus garage in the late 80's and walk down to the Dime/One Kennedy Square building n/k/a Chrysler House. It was cheaper than the Kennedy Square garage across the street...

    While I appreciate the sentiment, that's a little harsh. I loved Tiger Stadium from the first time I walked through one of the upper deck gangways and saw the brilliant green outfield. I loved the...

    Are the coverages comparable in those states? I don't know the answer to that question; but, citing lower rates in other states is only relevant if the coverages are the same or substantially...

    I did not read the Detroit News article, so I don't know if this has been discussed; but, in 1973, part of the sales pitch for No-Fault was the substantial problems caused by the fault-based system....

    I don't recall the specifics of funding. Was there any public money used? If this was all private funding, the cost is not an issue. Private benefactors can direct funds wherever they choose, I...

    Had to be in New York for business last week. Took the Air Train from JFK to Howard Beach and switched to the A train, which took me directly to downtown Brooklyn. By far the best way to navigate...

    Interesting to see how this thread developed. It's fascinating how people on opposite sides of a debate each believe they stand on the moral high ground.

    I agree. If Tiger Stadium truly was beyond the point of refurbishing, which it probably was, I would have liked to have seen something like the Yankees did with the new Yankee Stadium--a new...

    I find DTW to be a much better experience than JFK, Newark, or DFW. My only complaint is after picking up your luggage on the lower level, you have to go back up to cross the road, then down again to...

    And what makes you any different than the "racists?" You hate because of someone's ideas, and you justify your hatred with a sense of moral superiority; yet, you both hate, just for different reasons.

    I don't disagree with any of that. He was well liked and had a better relationship with the business community than many people realize. He presided over the city at a time when most major cities in...
