We decided to take the family on a Sunday outing today. So after church we went to Mercury Burger Bar. In my opinion (the only one that counts, right?), Mercury is THE best place in Detroit for burgers. We’ve been told that the milkshakes are “the bomb” but we’re always too full to order dessert. Next time.
Just across the street is my favorite building in Detroit – Michigan Central Station. Construction on the building started in 1912 for Michigan Central Railroad. It has apparently been the subject of many restoration projects but so far, no one knows what’s going to happen to it. Recently it gained a few new windows so hopefully something will be happening and soon. I love to see Detroit building and improving. And I love it even more when the old Detroit can be salvaged. One day I will go inside of this building. I might have to wait till it’s open to the public since I’m not keen on the idea of spending up to 30 days in jail and paying a $250 fine. But if I did decide to sneak inside (I think have a couple of friends that are up for the adventure), I’m sure it’d be the most fun I’ve had in all my life.
There’s just something about this house:
This is the side view of that house. The house is huge, right? The hope that is found all over Detroit is nothing short of amazing.
And I’m not sure who planted these flowers as the house is obviously uninhabited.
Don’t let anyone tell you Detroit is dead. It’s alive and well. Sometimes you just have to look to find life. Just like Dr. Ian Malcolm said, “Life, uh…finds a way.”
