Hi Gigi,

My wife discovered your Detroit blog today and we both enjoyed your saga very much!

She used to work in downtown Detroit and I lived in the areas you mention in the seventies. It was pretty dangerous back then also but there was no crack at that time, just junkies and winos. They did not have as much anxiety.

I attended the art school before they changed the name but I did my best sketching at the old Casino building on Belle Isle.

A trick to a long life in Detroit that I learned was to barricade yourself in the attic at night. The previous evening's "visitors and guests" downstairs were always gone by daylight.
