It reminded me of my Grandma's house in Nortown


Speaking of Nortown, here's the Serbian Church (I forgot the official name of it) on Van Dyke & Outer Drive, right behind Serbian Hall. I remember watching them build this church from my Grandma's front porch in the 60's.
I was born at Holy Cross Hospital (now called St. John's) which is pictured on the left.
The former St. Stanislaus Church is now called 'The Promised Land'. For interior pix of Promised Land, click here.
The former St. Stanislaus School has been converted into the 'Detroit Academy of Arts and Sciences'. Well done!
New life for a virtually dead neighborhood. It looks like it got a steambath; looks like new!!

Sweetest Heart of Mary Church. What's up with the tarp?
Sweetest Heart of Mary appears to be getting a little TLC.
