The River Walk

Do you see what I see? Does she see what he sees? Can any two people see the same thing? Probably not, but we can get close.

There are people who see Detroit as bright and shiny. A place full of life, colors, and amazing things.

There are people who see Detroit as a giant wasteland. A place to burn down and start over.

Then there are the realists. Those who know that Detroit is not the flourishing city it once was. Who also know it is coming back. The colors are saturating the streets and buildings once again. The smog is lifting out of the air and the river is flowing clearer. 

More and more people are flocking to the riverwalk during their lunch hour. A great place to break up the monotony of the work life. A place to take a deep breath and smell the fresh air, to fish for pleasure or dinner.

The Riverwalk is one of the more concentrated melting pots of Detroit. It is a place where the overtly positive, overtly negative, and those who see both sides come together and share one of the cleanest places available to Detroiters.

So when you need somewhere to go where it doesn't matter who you are or where you came from, take a trip to the riverfront. Whether you are a glass half-full person, glass half-empty person or see the glass as having something in it regardless of the amount, the river front is a place to see all three.
