Safe Detroit

Apparently, according to Forbes, Detroit is the 12th safest city in America! Nice to know, especially they said it was the most dangerous one just six months ago...

Wayne County Tax Auction

There is a tax auction next week in Detroit - some 6000 or so properties are reportedly for sale, starting at $500. I have identified a couple of interesting options in strategic locations or to turn into parks, and hope to attend on Monday for at least a little while. In particular, there is one parcel that I would like to buy and donate to the Muslim Center to facilitate their long term plans. If I make it out to the auction, I will post my experiences.
