#DetroitLove: One coffee date, and he knew it was forever

For Valentine’s Day, The Neighborhoods will be sharing short and sweet love stories from Detroit couples who met in Detroit. Join in on the love using our #DetroitLove hashtag.

Andrew Morton and Josh Winowiecki

Meeting online is a norm in today’s dating world. Andrew and Josh met online and decided on the Roasting Plant for a first date in 2015. After a quick cup of Joe and a short walk downtown, Andrew said he knew he’d met someone special.

Your grandaddy was riding scooters in Black Bottom

Anybody know whose grandfather that is circled in the photo above? He was clearly ahead of his time. A trendsetter. A visionary. Ugh, his mind!

You might notice that ol’ boy is riding a scooter, and that the photo is dated August 31, 1949. The photo was taken in the Black Bottom neighborhood by the City of Detroit — hey, that’s us! — just prior to the neighborhood’s destruction via eminent domain.
