University of Detroit Jesuit plans to purchase former recreation center

Johnson Recreation Center in the Pembroke neighborhood, empty since 2006, will be completely renovated by the private high school pending its $625,000 purchase. The City of Detroit, which owns the facility, closed Johnson Rec during a mass closure of recreation centers between 2006 and 2013.

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.
