One of the most interesting stories in Detroit is that of the lower east side of the city. The area running from Lafayette Park all the way to Jefferson Chalmers and the Grosse Pointe border has amazing history, a sense of community, as well as residents and activists determined the make this part of town all it could be.
Sven Gustafson sat down with Josh Elling of Jefferson East at Andrew's and talked about how to develop a neighborhood in a truly inclusive manner, the things happening with beautiful historic buildings like the Vanity Ballroom, and how the community has worked together to face and address the challenges of the area.
