    I think the first subway plan was created in 1917. The second plan was in the 1920s and was killed by the Great Depression.

    ETA: Didn't see Egrant's post above. It was 1915.

    Ironically, the avenues are as wide as they are because the city was planning for a subway system.

    It's not a rapid transit rail line. It's a streetcar. Streetcars are built on the street. Plenty of cities around the world have them and they work just fine.



    That's actually not true. All...

    Detroit actually does need that capacity if it wants to build density.



    That is a management issue. It shouldn't take 30 minutes between trains.



    You can't have population density...

    That's not hard to fix.



    Incorrect analogy. The Q Line is a piece of infrastructure. The analogy would be the road. Do you build the road for the bus to operate on? Do you build the tracks...

    I don't have anything against BRT, but it's not a replacement for a train. In terms of planning and people mobility, a subway wouldn't be analogous to a bus. It would be more analogous to a...

    I don't know why people keep citing flexibility as a good thing. That is not a good thing. Predictability is a good thing. A rail system is more predictable than a bus system.

    He's not quite ancient in quarterback years. Plus he's played in a Super Bowl. Have the Lions ever had a qb that's played in a Super Bowl?

    It would be like not striving to be an industrial center in 1900.

    I think there is a break in the calculations somewhere. If outer Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb have declined in white population by 110,000, that almost certainly means that Michigan would have...

    Penske seems like a nice guy, and Detroit is fortunate to have him on its side (except for what his Grand Prix does to Belle Isle every summer). But... the Penske Corporation isn't the future of...

    I share skepticism that Ross being involved will move the needle one way or the other, but Hudson Yards is the largest private development in American history. But all three involved parties (U of...

    San Francisco followed New York's lead after NYC banned cars on 14th Street in Manhattan. I think the Curbed article is making a bit of a leap, since most of the proposed closings have nothing to do...

    Okay, I read something yesterday that said the criteria was minimum 3.0 GPA and 21 on the ACT. Maybe that article was ahead of the facts.

    Ironically, Downtown Detroit might actually be better off if the Ilitches hadn't restored the Fox.

    There are a lot of articles out there about how error prone facial recognition is, and how the error rate increases for darker skinned people. A quick Google search will enlighten you on the issue. ...
