    Nice plug for the Motor City. I’ve learned a few things. Thanks

  2. John Nguyen says:

    Nice video, there are also the Bird, Lime, and Spin scooters. For food there are food halls such as the Detroit Fort Street Galley, Detroit Shipping Company, and Monroe Market (inside the Greektown Casino). Another thing is Woodward Avenue is becoming almost like a Magnificent Mile and H&M is supposedly a store along there which may bring other major retailers. Some other exciting things coming are the Columbia Street area and Centennial Park.

    You mentioned Greek Town. In the 1970’s I went there and ate gyros. The best ever, with Groesch beer. Haven’t been back since except the airport. Thank for the video! So informative.

      Are you talking about the one in the Renaissance Center (the one in the video) or one close by? I know that in addition to the Marriott inside, there is a Courtyard across the street on Jefferson Ave.
