Greektown (Detroit, MI)
** Here's a preview -- we're covering this story on one of my Detroit news sites. Hopefully we will wake the Detroit community up to the poor living conditions of downtown Detroit. The mood is very eager and yet the buildings are in dire conditions. This problem is more common than you think. When dealing with water damage there is also a rampant black mold situation in these old structures. ========================================================    Detroit, Michigan – What does one do when their living environment turns into a tidal wave during the winter months?

Friends, last week we reported on my friend Kattrina and her loft situation...."My good friend had an unfortunate event happen to her yesterday in her Detroit loft.

This past weekend my wife and I journeyed over to downtown Detroit to meet some friends at the renaissance center on the pier, near Greektown.  This building is a big beautiful piece of architecture, and it overlooks the channel between Detroit and Canada.  In fact you can look across the water and see the Canadian side.  It was a beautiful day, and we had a wonderful dinner with an unusual backdrop of large feighters, ferry boats, water skiiers and coast guard boats skirting through the channel.   It was a great day, and we really enjoyed seeing all the activity of people walking around the area.  The downtown district has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment, and it was the first time I had been back there since I went to a atate Realtor convention in January.
