quote:

Cedo said he's sick of hearing people call his town a "blue-collar city." That's so yesterday. "We're a lot closer to the lattes and laptops of Seattle than to the Rust Belt of Pittsburgh," he says. "Pittsburgh is what we used to be."




Nothing personal, but I'm not entirely convinced!

This was a nice touch:


quote:

A tip: Sneakers, baseball caps and athletic gear are big "no's" in Floods' dress code. In fact, Seattle casual doesn't cut an impression anywhere in dress-up Detroit. Instead of parkas and hiking boots, stylin' Detroiters wear full-length cashmere and polished Italian leather -- when they're not doing stepping-out alligator.

"I think we're the best-dressed city in the country," says Circuit Court Judge Craig Strong, who slips out of boring judicial robes into look-here fashion: lime-green, pink and double-breasted red linen suits, white full-length fur coats, feathered fedoras. He keeps 100 suits in rotation. His motto: "The quickest way to get to where you're going is to look like you've already arrived."

Man, now THAT might be the best outsider article written. The author hit the well-known (DIA, MAX) and the Underground (Bronx). The metropolitan (FLOODS), and the historical (Berts). And, didn't overlook the techno!

She's a great writer. She is genuinely impressed with Detroit. Make sure to thank her for her fair assessment of the City's Cultural scene.

I gave her a call! Got her voicemail in Seattle, which she said she was checking. I mentioned that she should check out Detroityes.com

Kinda sad to use a judge dressed like a pimp to cover Detroit's fashion sense or lack thereof.
Good article otherwise.
