Following the Antique market, we drove a couple hours south to Detroit to catch a baseball game at Comerica Park. Not only was it my first baseball game (not as boring as one would think) it was also my first time visiting this city that I heard so much about. Driving around Detroit gave me the chills, seeing the wide streets so deserted, stores and apartment buildings abandoned was at the same time sad, but beautiful and romantic.
When speaking to locals, you could sense the great attachment that they still have towards their city, how much they care and are hoping for its rebirth! After seeing the impressive Art Deco ceiling of the Guardian building and the abandoned train station, drinking Negronis at Cliff Bells jazz club and stuffing my face with Coney island dogs, I was convinced too, this city is pretty cool!
