Do you hate the Livernois island? Talk to the mayor about it

A community meeting will be held on August 16 for residents in and around Livernois-McNichols to discuss proposed streetscape improvements to the area.

Top of the agenda for residents? A chance to sound off on the long-debated median along Livernois Avenue, which has been a source of back-and-forth for Detroiters for years.

Baker's Keyboard Lounge was on 'Jeopardy' last night

Our very own Baker’s Keyboard Lounge got a little love on “Jeopardy” Monday night.

During the first night of the long-running game show’s Tournament of Champions, in which past winners are invited back for another showdown, the northwest Detroit jazz club (featured in our District 2 video on The Neighborhoods, of course) was the subject of a $600 tile in the category “Americana.” It was the second question of the night.
