Play: Exploration Launched from Detroit

As many Challenge Detroit fellows have already written about, Detroit is a highly cultured city with world-class institutions that are impossible to miss, such as the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) and the […]

Live: Triumph of the City

Anyone who has read my previous blog posts might know I tend to be a little more academic. So, let’s talk about living in downtown Detroit on a macro scale for a moment rather than a micro scale.. What does it actually mean to live in high- density urbanism? How can we affect massive change […]

City Councils Across America | A Detroit Comparison

I was annoyed the other day to hear on WDET about the Belle Isle deal falling apart, as many obvious common sense city improvements do each year, because of the ineffective and purposefully obstructionist city council. Many days I really feel like the only thing keeping Detroit from reaching it’s full potential at this rare […]

Part 1: M-1 Will Happen, Here’s Why

Last week I was at a table during lunch where I overheard someone who was asked about the M-1 project say adamantly it wasn’t going to happen. Of course, there are plenty of naysayers floating around any major project in Detroit, but the unusual part was that it was said with such confidence it made […]

The Extreme Paradox: The Dissonance of Detroit

“Hope and despair are the prevailing Detroit moods, a classic mask of comedy and tragedy on one municipal face. Paradox rules. You pick: Detroit is having its phoenix moment, flying high. Or it is plunging ever deeper into the abyss. Emotional whiplash is the only constant.” – That is how Detroit News columnist Laura Berman […]

Vehicle Inspections in the Land of Automobiles

While back in New  York, I had to bring my car in for the annual safety inspection. In my travels I have realized that fewer and fewer states are requiring annual safety inspections. The evidence lays on the side of the road. In states without these inspections, you can see a littering of abandoned cars […]

In The News: on the blogs

I made it onto the new DTE Energy blog known as WE DTE, including my Challenge Detroit video.

And in a separate article, the Detroit Regional News Hub blog here.

 

In the News: On the Official Blog

While it may not be another mention on a national news website like The Atlantic, I did contribute one and a half articles on the official Challenge Detroit Blog. The first article was a piece I wrote about our visit to The DetroitWorks Project which I arranged a few weeks back. The second article was a collaboration […]

85 Ovals: Elections in Michigan

Caption: The voting booth and lengthy 4 page/85 question ballot. Me and my Challenge Detroit Colleague Bithiah Lee pointing to our “Did you Vote Today? I did!” stickers. 85 questions makes it feel like a true accomplishment.

Observed in Michigan: An unbelievably long ballot, I had to fill in a total of 85 ovals. Astonishing for me after […]

Can a parking deck spark an urban revitalization?

Last week, Quicken Loans founder and Chairman Gilbert announced through his development arm Rock Ventures it will build a 1,300-space parking garage with 33,000-square feet of retail space in downtown Detroit. It will zig-zag from the corner of Broadway and East Grand River (YMCA) to the corner of Library and Gratiot, which can be seen in […]
