The Gem Theatre was one of the few structures saved when they built Comerica Park and Ford Field.

Some of these people are renting out their houses for several thousand dollars during Super Bowl Week.

The State Theatre is one of the many theatres in the Grand Circus Park Theatre District.

The Ford Building is always so hard to photograph.

Construction on One Kennedy Square is slated to be done by Spring.

The Fox Theatre is generally the busiest theatre in the country, even outperforming Radio City Music Hall.

Lower Woodward's revitalization is nearing completion. Most of the buildings have been cleaned up with a few still under renovation.

People always think Comerica is shorter than it is because there are two floors for every window embankment.

I'm so glad you posted these Hudkina and I'm even more grateful for the fact that I knew exactly where you were at all times. I'm also glad that everyone is getting such a wonderful--albeit surprised--look at Detroit.

Wow, great pictures! I love how dense and historic Detroit is. But I don't enjoy the temperature, it looks positively frigid! lol

:rofl: Where does it look frigid?? This January was one of the warmest Michigan had on record. :rolleyes:

To a South Floridian anything under 70 is "freezing". I remember a few Februarys ago I visited my sister in Fort Lauderdale. It was in the 50's, and everyone was acting like it was the end of the world. Having come from being in the 30's, 50 was great!
