Off the beaten track Detroit photo tour
Below: Lafayette Coney register. Coleman Young keeps watch at the top of the photo, and a bumper sticker stands guard at the bottom.
Below: A balanced lunch: one loose, one Coney, one root beer. Elapsed time for me to scarf everything down: five minutes.
Below: Devil's Night remnants near State Fair St. and Hoover. Directly across the street from this unsightly mess is a Catholic church.
Below: One of many burnt out post-World War II style houses near 7 Mile and Van Dyke.
Below: Who's up for some urban spelunking? This abandoned building is here near Gratiot and Van Dyke. I'd like to figure out what it is or was at one time.
Below: Who needs Ikea or Macy's when you've got a Mattress Station at the end of the block?
Below: Despite being surrounded by burnt out houses, some Detroit residents still manage to get into the holiday spirit.
