Kiosks to help with downtown navigation

Thirty-five green kiosks are being installed around Downtown Detroit to help visitors find their way around the city during the upcoming Super Bowl.

According to the Associated Press, the 9-foot-tall kiosks will point visitors in the direction of Campus Martius, Cobo Hall, Hart Plaza and the stadiums. The kiosks will also feature maps of the downtown area.

    Those are much-needed and long overdue; better yet, they are permanent.

    I am glad these are permanent. They can help point people from the burbs (like me) in the direction of things. Having things to do and see doesn’t do much good when people don’t know where they are.

    Am I the only one that didn’t initially understand that an arrow pointed downwards means the attraction/street/etc. is behind you? During Al Allen’s story on the kiosks Friday morning on Fox 2 News, Alan Lee chided Ben Bailey for not understanding what the down arrows meant… but I don’t think he’s alone. I wonder how many Superbowl visitors will be left wondering how to find the entrance to our underground city.
