Greektown morning

Greektown is an experience. You really can’t visit Detroit without walking it’s main street, enjoying some saganaki or trying out a goodie from Astoria. It always seems to be bustling, day or night. Yet this morning, it was oddly quiet at quarter to ten.

I immediately wished I had my camera as the sight of Monroe Street with the fresh snow and holiday decorations. An unexpected festive winter streetscape.

And for the record, no I don’t bring my camera with me to church even if I attend mass at one of the most beautiful churches ever.

    As a sidebar to your entry, I just thought I would make a comment about an experience that I recently had in Detroit. A friend and I went to Cobo Arena Thursday for the 89X show and decided to stop at Hard Rock for lunch and then Hockeytown Cafe for a few drinks beforehand. We parked at Cobo and took the People Mover to the Cadillac Square station for lunch at Hard Rock.We were surprised at how clean the People Mover was inside and out. After lunch, we decided to walk to Hockeytown from HR and all along Woodward, I was pleasantly surprised by the new concrete, clean streets, new construction and future planned sites that we noticed. I was really encouraged by the progress being made, at least in the 2 blocks or so from the CompuWare building to Hockeytown Cafe. Undoubtedly, a lot of this is surely attributed to the Super Bowl on Feb. 5, but it is still nice to see the positive changes being made.

    I have never spent much time in Detroit and always found no reason to go. I also had the wrong idea of how Detroit was. But as a result of a new found joy in my life, I have been show the wonders of Detroit. Thank you to that person I am down there more often enjoying the pleasent walks.
