    It's nice to see Corktown get noticed and praised, but I think most Detroiters and the people on this forum already know about that area's comeback and its many food and booze establishments.

    PS. I'm now back in Australia (arrived yesterday, via Hong Kong). See you in Detroit next summer.

    I will put up a post on DetroitYes at some point in the next few weeks about the Django...

    I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago. The bridge-with-elevator thing is quite common along Las Vegas Boulevard ('The Strip') because that road is very wide (multi lane traffic) and is busy 24 hours a...

    Hart Plaza is awfully run-down and rusty. It would also seem to contain quite a few longterm residents/loiterers, far more than other parts of central Detroit. The sculptures are all rather large and...
  6. Weekend road closures by police on Monroe St in Greektown?

    It seems the police are blocking Monroe Street (between Beaubien and St Antoine) every Friday and Saturday night.

    I can see no reason for the constant closures, and it blocks off access (cars and...

    Isn't there already major works going on in Spirit Plaza? I was there yesterday and a large area in front of the CAY building (where the Spirit of Detroit sculpture sits) was boarded up and had what...

    I support these kinds of efforts every time. I've seen Anton's video inside the (now trashed) Pontiac Silverdome, but his stated plan "to highlight and document every major street" needs some...

    Agreed - drive up Woodward to New Center and then come back along Cass. There's been lots of development, plus the Q Line street cars, and the DPD doesn't seem as stressed or stretched-thin as in...

    Is Detroit's population growing?

    Rents have risen in Detroit in the last five years. Has the population?

    Don't tell me people outside Detroit have stopped being lazy and have taken a realistic and fresh (accurate) view of the...

    Yes, 'OFFENSIVE' is legally considered subjective and hence there is no legislation or court of law that can mess with it. It's just more bogus legal/police/political double-speak. But nobody told...

    The sign might still be there. Before Django died (a DYes forum regular) he told me he was keen to buy the sign when we drove past it on Michigan Avenue. That was about five years ago. I don't know...

    All this talk of the various car models... was this tragic accident a result of cars, or of the crap 'culture' and attitudes on 7-Mile?

    6 Mile and 7 Mile are far worse than 8 Mile.
  14. Les Gold - Hardcore Pawn: American Jewelry and Loan on 8-Mile

    I'm keen to get opinions on the reality TV show Hardcore Pawn.

    Personally I've never been a fan of 'reality television' shows - they merely show mediocre people "doing their job" - repo, cooking,...

    IMHO, cars have never looked better than they did in that era. Much like skyscrapers have never looked better than those constructed in the 1920s and 30s.

    It's a pity those types of cars all...

    Afterhours bars in Detroit

    Are there any safe afterhours bars in Detroit? I mean, trouble could potentially occur at any bar at any time of night.

    I was reading about the death of the rapper 'Proof', a friend of Eminem, who...

    Yes, but she formed The Pretenders in London. I think she was there to seduce or marry Ray Davies of The Kinks. I heard she succeeded. Her bandmates Peter Farndon and James Honeyman-Scott both died...

    Yes, that's how Chrissy Hynde (of 'The Pretenders') sings it. Deetroit.

    Popular band in Britain, not so sure about in the US.

    'Brass In Pocket' was the song.

    It's a driving style, apparently. (I don't believe the story that it's about farting.)

    The 'Detroit Lean' when driving?

    So the 'Detroit Lean' was mentioned in a song's lyrics... was this a Motown thing? Exactly what was it?
  23. Which other US cities resemble Downtown Detroit's architecture?

    NYC?
    Chicago?
    Cinci?

    I suppose a major factor is the architects (Kahn or whoever) who worked in other US cities at the same time as they were active in The D.

    I mean, how can you not love...
  24. What was your favorite era living in Detroit?

    Well, the title kinda says it all.

    Some of the forum-ers here are elderly and have seen more of Detroit than the rest of us.

    The rest may be seeing a resurgence in Downtown and its surrounds,...

    If I am not mistaken, Fernando Palazuelo is not South American - he just lives there... and, yes, he didn't buy the entire Packard plant, just some parts. That probably makes sense - he has never...
