    Problem is, the downtown retail spaces are still going to be empty with posters in the windows. Detroit needs a real influx of cash, but the problem is, IMO, that all the ideas seem to be short sighted.

      I wonder what out-of-towners have thought/are going to think as they come upon Ford Field/Comerica/Fox Theater/State Theater/Hockey Town Cafe/ and then drive maybe a couple blocks north and see all the construction/building getting torn down, etc?
      Campus Maritius, etc. are all decked out. But go a couple blocks in either direction . . .

              Aw hell, it just needs a little TLC. Some paint, too.

              It's amazing where weeds will grow. I was in the top row of the upper deck at Arrowhead for a Chiefs game and there were weeds growing in cracks in the concrete. The nations of the world could engage in thermo-nuclear war, wipe out civilization, but before long there would be weeds growing. Plus bugs.

                Here's a nice ESPN article on this:

                A six-pack to go at Tiger Stadium's hallowed ground
                DETROIT -- The high-end club has everything any partygoer could want: flat screens, water fountains, go-go cages, a bed of roses and a high-flying trapeze artist.

                But ignore the glitz and glamour and walk past the stage where rapper Snoop Dogg will perform Friday night; and on the other side of two sets of double doors, you'll find an overstuffed slice of American sports history.

                There, directly in front of you less than eight feet away, is the old pitcher's mound. The dirt is wet and clumpy, the grass around it frail and thin. But, indeed, this is exactly where Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell and the rest of the 1984 Tigers mobbed Willie Hernandez to celebrate the World Series clincher. Indeed, this is exactly where Mark Fidrych talked to the ball, talked to himself and threw back all the balls that "had hits in them."

                To your left, the slab of dirt that Hank Greenberg once owned. Behind that, the patch of grass where Al Kaline once roamed. And in front you, the ending point for 11,111 home-run trots through the stadium's 87-year life span.

                  To answer a previously asked question, yes, Nemo's is still in business, in the same location on Michigan Avenue, and offers a shuttle to Wings and Lions games.
