Why Detroit: Answers from a Recent Returnee
Last week on Found Michigan we started a dicussion about “Why Michigan?” and, specifically, why some people are choosing to stay in or return to the Detroit area. Some of you chimed in with your answers, but we felt like Detroit is such a complicated place the question warranted a longer conversation. We’re still in Maine for a few more weeks, so we Skyped our friend Megan Frye, who’s got deep roots in the area and recently made a move back to metro Detroit herself. Lou talked with her from her Ferndale home earlier this week.
