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.
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.
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..
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.)
Hart Plaza We even have our own Stargate ;)
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.
Grand Prix Last one of Belle Isle, taken during the Grand Prix race.
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.
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.
Eastern Market Our local farmer's market. Fresh, local produce is shipped in weekly.
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.
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.
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.
The Guardian Building Detroit has some great architecture. The buildings that are kept up are incredibly unique.
The Fisher Building This is located in the New Center, a few miles from downtown.
Hitsville Located on W. Grand Boulevard, the Motown Museum is a testament to Detroit's creativity.
Heidelberg Project Another testament to Detroiter's creative sides.
