Free Press Driving Tour of Detroit City

Bill McGraw of the Detroit Free Press drove through the entire city of Detroit this summer. I haven't watched all the videos yet, but I'll let you know when I do. I just watched the first one and it seems that this series could be very interesting. The link is below and part of the entry title.

Detroit is on the New York Times "53 Places to Visit in 2008"

Alright, so I'm basically done with finals for my first semester of my third year of law school. This third year is such a waste of time and money. It is somewhat of a traveshamockery that law schools are allowed to charge $30,000 for a year that is basically useless and unecessary. Law school could easily be done in two years, maybe even one and a half. Oh well... Anyway, now that I am done, I'll be able to post more frequently, which should be exciting for my loyal readers. Detroit is number 40 on the New York Times' list of 53 places to visit in 2008. There are only about 5 or 6 American cities/places on the list. Detroit falls right after San Francisco at #39. I bet you never thought these two cities would be in the same sentence. The blurb on Detroit doesn't really detail very much but mentions the new casinos and the reopening of the DIA after the renovations that just finished up last month. The New York Times seems to continually give Detroit good press. The description is below...

"40. DETROIT

Historically crime-ridden Detroit may not spring to mind as a hot tourist spot, but don't tell that to the city's bullish hoteliers. Newcomers include the MGM Grand Detroit (www.mgmgranddetroit.com), the MotorCity Casino Hotel (www.motorcitycasino.com) in an old Wonder Bread factory and the historic Book Cadillac Hotel, being transformed into a Westin (www.westinbookcadillac.com). Plus, the Detroit Institute of Arts (www.dia.org) just reopened after a $158 million renovation."

Like I said, there isn't too much to the description, but considering this is one of the most read stories on the New York Times website, it can only be a good thing.
