Detroit is not only about abandoned places. There is a good part of the city.

1 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Russel Bazaar


2 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Mexicantown


3 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Rivera Court
This is my favorite mural in the city. It's inside of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and is a completely enclosed courtyard, filled by Diego Revera's interpretation of Detroit's (at the time) industrialized state.

DIA Entrance


5 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Campus Martius Park
Another one of the gems of the city is Campus Martius, at the heart of downtown and the "hub" for all our crazy hub-and-spoke streets. (Thanks, French heritage, for a crazy layout)

Campus Martius Tree
This is the lit tree that sits above the fountain at the same park, looking NE.


7 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

The Spirit of Detroit
Heading south of Campus Martius, you will see the Spirit of Detroit. It was added in the late 50's by an artist called Fredericks.

We love our sports here, and love to show that we love them..


9 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Tiger at Comerica Park
We love Detroit Production as much as our sports. This is the Comerica Park Tiger dressed in a Carharrt jacket (a local company.)


10 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Hart Plaza
We even have our own Stargate ;)


11 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Belle Isle Conservatory
Another of Detroit's great parks is Belle Isle. Here is one of the many places on the island, the Conservatory. It originated during WW2, when the Queen of England sent a collection of rare and unique orchids to the US for safekeeping from the German air raids.

Inside
This is inside of the conservatory. This picture doesn't do the building much justice.


13 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Grand Prix
Last one of Belle Isle, taken during the Grand Prix race.


14 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Harwell Park
After old Tiger's Stadium was demo'd, it was rescued by a local group of Corktowners who maintained the landkeeping, maintenance, and improvements on the grounds. Pickup games are held on the weekends, and the local little league practices on the field.


15 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

St Patrick's Day Parade
Another Corktown great is the parade. Held yearly the Sunday before St Paddy's, it is one of the bigger festivals in the city.


16 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Eastern Market
Our local farmer's market. Fresh, local produce is shipped in weekly.


17 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

This one was taken on "flower day", the Saturday after Mother's Day. It is one of my personal favorite times to go to the market, as there are always so many happy families during this time.


18 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

The Fist
Because of his efforts to fight Jim Crow laws, and his monumental status as one of the first black sports heroes in america, Joe Louis received the honor of this monument to his impact in and out of the boxing ring.


19 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

St. Albertus's Church
This is the interior of one of many beautiful churches in the city. St. Albertus' is located on the east (central) side of the city.


20 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

The Guardian Building
Detroit has some great architecture. The buildings that are kept up are incredibly unique.


21 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

The Fisher Building
This is located in the New Center, a few miles from downtown.


22 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Hitsville
Located on W. Grand Boulevard, the Motown Museum is a testament to Detroit's creativity.


23 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Heidelberg Project
Another testament to Detroiter's creative sides.


24 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)


25 Good Part of Detroit (28 pics)

Lastly, some city skylines for effect. =)

Detroit is a great city. Sure, it has it's struggles, but what big city doesn't. Thanks for posting some positive views of this great town. My only critique of this set is No. 11. I don't think that's a legit picture.

"There is a good part of the city"

As in a SINGLE good part of the city? That is a real bad sign. Most good cities have a "bad part of town" and are not mainly bad parts of town.
