Detroits Greektown Jan 23, 2017
It's been years since Hans and I visited Detroit's GREEKTOWN. I do remember that we had dinner at the Old Parthenon. Now it's the New Parthenon.

We strolled through the neighbourhood of Greektown - actually it's a single block on Monroe Avenue off Beaubien Street. There were mostly restaurants ( where the Ouzo flows and the Souvlaki sizzles ) with names like Plaka's - Pegasus - New Parthenon - and get this - Pizza Papalis. There are Greek pastry shops, Souvenir Shops and the flashy entrance to Greektown Casino.

There is also the beautiful St. Marys Church.

Not to worry about your safety. There was police presence - one on a bicycle who was warning a driver that he could not park on the street - at all!

The People Mover has a station here in Greektown.

A Bit Abit Detroit

The largest city in the State of Michigan, DETROIT is also a major port city on the Detroit River. North of my hometown of Windsor, Detroit is the only major U.S. city that looks south to Canada. Founded in 1701 by Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac.

Known as the world's automotive center, "Motor City" is home to the Big Three car companies - GM - Ford - Chrysler.

It is also here that popular music legacies began with Berry Gordy Jr. and the "Motown" sound which rose to prominence in the 60's and early 70's with acts such as Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye and Martha & the Vandelas.

Can't forget the nickname "Hockeytown" home of Detroit's beloved Red Wings.

Other points of interest in Detroit is the magnificent Renaissance Center and Hart Plaza.
