Along Michigan Avenue, Detroit: Part Two

A drive along the main boulevard of Michigan Avenue from Dearborn, Michigan, world headquarters of Ford, into downtown Detroit tells many stories: of decay, abandonment, life continuing among the ruins, hope for the rebirth one day of this once-mighty city. During my recent stay, I met only the most friendly and helpful people. May the city rise again!

Hair cuts.
Golden arches, CVS.
Liquor, lotto, WIC.
Open for business.
Also open.

Almost into downtown.
Heart of downtown, a beautiful summer afternoon.
Hope for a storied city!
