Tiger Stadium: A Long Fly to Center

A Sunday in Detroit and a few shots of what's left of Tiger Stadium and the surrounding neighborhood. The centerfield flagpole (above) is still standing, but one local resident (below) is not.

  1. We parked behind Robinson's when we did the local running races that started in Corktown area. Easy in easy out. the toilets in this place were beyond skanky. They made the bushes look mighty inviting.

  2. okay... you're probably still on vacation, I know... but since there haven't been too many posts lately, it has caused me to notice your picture in this post of a lamp post and an umbrella.... or was that supposed to be a cloud shot... are you nostalgic about the lamp posts in Flint? ;)

  6. Corktown is a lot nicer than 6th and Mission!

  7. Aw, come on... I heard the mission was trendy now... :) there were some pretty cool bars there when I visited... (wow, was it really 15 years ago?)

  8. 6th and Mission is the Tenderloin, which is only slightly trendy, unlike The Mission, which is decidedly trendy but stops at about 12th.
