Mary Wilson's Detroit story, unfiltered

Mary Wilson was not supposed to do a Friday morning photo shoot at the former Brewster Recreation Center, the second abandoned building she had been in those last 48 hours she was back in her hometown. In town for Detroit Homecoming, Wilson had had dinner in Michigan Central Depot, spruced up just enough for all the other fellow ex-pats invited back to the city. And then she had done a panel discussion at a still-under-renovation loft in Corktown, also abandoned not too long ago.
