Knock Down a House, Up Sprouts Something New

heidelberg TV

Whole neighborhoods are being torn down in Detroit. But life goes on.

In one of the oldest neighborhoods around Heidelberg Street, abandoned buildings and empty lots are being turned into living art. It is a small sign of hope, like a wildflower springing up from a crack in a junkyard parking lot. It is also an example of what people do when the old structures and the old rules are swept away: they build something new and totally unexpected.

That is the backdrop for the quirky story of destruction and rebirth called The Loose Meat Sandwich King of Hamtramck. It is a fun read that will give your own hope a boost, and a few laughs along the way.
