Wow...thanks for sharing this link! I almost shed a tear looking through the pictures and knowing that there is so much beauty in Detroit, yet no one, especially Mike Ilitch seems to care about rebuilding some of those old buildings(many of which he owns). Thank you DetroitBazaar for taking the time to share your opinions and caring about the future of our dear Detroit! Continue on with what you have started and good luck to you and the people of Detroit!

You bet, if you want to get involved in any way, whether it's support or just planting a tree; or if you know of a unique Detroit area band or project, feel free to email us at detroitbazaar@yahoo.com.

Most of the time it just takes a few dedicated folks to get things done. These few folks have ten times the power of Ilitch and his slum mentality.

I'm sorry to say that, but after about 1990 the Ilitches have done nothing but bring in Johnny Rockets and turned once glorious buildings into parking lots and let the rest of the buildings crumble. I used to have a sweet spot in my heart for a fellow like him and what he and the city did to revitalize an area of the city. I look north now and I look west and east. We can and will bring life into the areas that are not part of his "empire".

Peace to you friend of Detroit
