    Certainly no offense intended, but to say Detroit is poised to be better than it's prime? I guess it was meant to be tongue in cheek.
    For those not familiar, here's a peek of Detroit in its prime:

    I had been to Manhattan and Chicago. Detroit has the potential to have a better downtown and in it's 1950s heyday Detroit was a much better city than them both. What Detroit doesn't want is the overcrowding of people in it's downtown that they other two have.New York and Chicago downtown's are too dense to even ride scooters let alone walk your dog down their main avenues.

    Yes you can. Detroit had a bustling downtown in its hey but it wasn't pack with shoulder to shoulder people that New York had. There still could be a bustling downtown without the overcrowding. I fi want to see more foot traffic on Woodward from Jefferson to Grand Blvd. H&M and hopefully a City Target on Woodward near Mack will increase the foot traffic and the use of the Qline

    I totally share your vision
    PS. Not that it changes the meaning but I think the correct phrase is ďyou cannot eat your cake and have it tooĒ

    Thanks for that ,
    I have seen that video before, I wish I could have seen that in person, I caught the tail end in the early 70ís.
    being from detroit you have to have a thick skin.
    Those were a great time for businesses in downtown and detroit. Times were very different ,people respected each other a lot more and definitely dressed better.
    I canít say much about people respecting each other anymore or anytime soon.
    It doesnít look good for the respect issues but a better downtown and detroit looks promising.

    This isnít what this thread is about, but it was in the ground floor of the Stanley Building at 35 W. Grand River between Woodward and Griswold. Currently loft apartments called 35W. The former Qwikee space is for lease.

    I spoke to someone that works at the H&M in fairlane and she informed me that the downtown store should be open by late October, definitely before Black Friday and the holiday shopping season.
    Also she said it will be larger than the fairlane location by about 10,000 sq ft
