Detroit downtown, riverfront, and jazz festival, September 6, 2015 September 7, 2015

Our Sunday afternoon:  starting at the Campus Martius park, walking to and along the riverfront, then back and up to the Jazz Festival.  Yes, this is the Nice Part of Detroit — no ruins here — but this is also a Say Nice Things About Detroit sort of post.

The Renaissance Center, now world headquarters of General Motors.  Not much going on, but the main level, with a display of GM vehicles, was open.

rencen - riverwalk

The Riverwalk – and a nature path (with crickets!) within view of the RenCen.  Very, very new.

fountains - cropped

Also on the Riverwalk, the GM Plaza and Promenade, Detroit’s equivalent of Chicago’s Millenium Park fountain, for kids to run around in.  Also new.

Just a building. . .

checker bar

The Checker Bar & Grill, because Detroit has hipsters, too.  (Plus:  Stroh’s beer!)
