Why do I love Detroit? In the summer you walk or drive down the streets in the hood and see the most beautiful sights. Beautiful women with their Daisy Dukes and halter tops or less walking down the street. You also can see old cars customized like I used to see when I was a teenager in the late fifties early sixties.
The ethnic festivals on the river front bring the people of the city together to enjoy the music and food of the various cultures in the city. The boat races and the Detroit Gran Prix bring in people from all over the US and the world.
Year round you have entertainment galore. The Fox, Orchestra Hall, Cobo Hall, Joe Louis Arena and many more places. One of my favorites is Vicki's Steak House on Grand River west of Southfield. Greek town is a safe and fun place to visit. Downtown is now safer than ever and full of entertainment.
There are many places to enjoy life all over the city.
I am white but I identify more with the Blacks. According to astrologers I have a black soul. I live in areas that are mostly black and go to many places where I am the only white. I have never felt uncomfortable and I have never been treated badly.
For me there is no place like Detroit. There is no place
else I want to live. Over the past 16 years I have seen the
city going down and coming back and since Mayor Archer's election it
has started a rebirth. Hopefully the Casino business will make
that rebirth come faster.
