Nothing Stops (Midtown) Detroit

Budding businesses. Innovative technology. Unique eats. Arts and culture. Renovated and historic housing.

No, it’s not Chicago or New York City. It’s all happening in our neighborhood – in Detroit’s booming Midtown.

For the next week, Doc in the D will be on location in Midtown, offering you a first-hand look at some of the new shops and restaurants, as well as plans for future growth and development. And, most importantly, we’ll show you how everyone at Henry Ford Hospital can play a role in Midtown’s success.

Our tour guide: Sue Mosey, the President of Midtown Detroit, Inc. who has been affectionately dubbed the “Mayor of Midtown.”

A native Detroiter, Sue’s worked since 1990 to develop Midtown into a thriving area that today continues to grow and amaze.

Sue and I spent some time talking about Midtown at the Fourteen East coffee shop on Woodward (stop in for some coffee, if you have the chance). We also toured several blocks of Midtown, near Avalon, Auburn and the Willy’s, as well as the community garden.

We covered a lot of ground.

From sustaining momentum and excitement surrounding Midtown to our plans for a pilot project that will make it even more convenient for Henry Ford Hospital employees to enjoy its shops and restaurants.

Above is the first video in my four-part Midtown “webisode” on Doc in the D.

It’s time for us to focus on the positive. Because nothing stops Detroit. The future of our city is in our hands.

Tune in Wednesday, to see the next video in our Midtown webisode: “Midtown Momentum.”
