And another thing: I live in Birmingham. It takes me 20 minutes to zip down 696/75 to sail on the beautiful Detroit River. I’ve been known to make it to my son’s home in Cork Town in 12 minutes if I’m late for a gathering! What’s all this” too far away” stuff?
I’ve been known to take 45 minutes traveling to Commerce Township and other places out in “pick-a-lake” Michigan (Waterford and beyond), and no one complains about that!
My son-in-law is a 15 year veteran of the Detroit Police Force and he worries about my safety more in the burbs than in The D! I LOVE DETROIT! More on this later!
