I was raised in a 4 family flat my grandfather owned at 2713 4th Street, a half block down from Grand River. Our front porch faced the back of the D'Hart apartment building, and its gravel "parking lot" although no-one who lived there owned cars. (It made a great place for baseball.)

I was born in 1961, and we lived there until 1972 (yes, we watched the riot from the front porch). We moved a few miles west, but my grandfather stayed there. I went to high school at Cass Tech, and practically lived with my grandfather until I graduated in 1979.

I'd be interested to hear from anyone who lives in that area now. (I now live in Montana.... quite a change!)

You can view my photographic art at www.darrylasher.com. When I get time, I would like to start a "Detroit-memories" weblog at my site. Stay tuned!
