Nothing Lasts Forever. The Brewster Homes. Detroit’s east side.

*****

"Like a building that’s been slated for blasting, I’m the proof that nothing is lasting." Never has a place matched an Aimee Mann lyric so well.

Concrete Jungle, or concrete prison? Does that change based on whether you lived in these projects and had to walk this bridge, or whether you just pass it on the freeway?

It’s commendable that there’s a Neighborhood Watch effort to secure the construction site (which I never see anyone working on). But who do the neighbors call about the asbestos?

Families, youth, innocence once lived here. Now, Metro Detroiters pull up regularly and walk around and snap photos and pay their final respects.

Demolition in Progress. And it’s been in progress for some time. Whatever reason there was to tear the building down should be reason to tear it down quickly.

Do Not Enter.

Not weird so much as strange.

Bo Blue. Bo Schembechler, as seen in Ann Arbor’s Painted Alley.
Surprisingly straight-ahead and mainstream for one of the few remnants of counter culture still left in Ann Arbor, the Painted Alley on East Liberty.
Schembechler is remembered in more permanent form at the University of Michigan football headquarters, which bear his name, Schembechler Hall.
