Indeed the promenade is brighter, its just that they turned off those crappy new lights that were installed in the ceiling because I came in there at 10 PM and had to be let in lol. It gave it a nicer look though, very Gothic.
The cafe is open.
its so sad, i never would have though it was more than 50 years old. I was shocked that this was Detroits oldest skyscraper when I read it a few weeks ago.
Comparing it to the old pic I have is saddening
