Detroit purchased Belle Isle in 1879, making it the nation's largest city-owned park. Planned by the designer of New York's Central Park, it remains one of Detroit's most alluring assets. Its deteriorating condition and city's fiscal morass prompted state and city leaders to propose a lease of the island (shown in 1901) to the state, which can better pay for its upkeep.

How nice. A decade ago, a guy from Craigslist tried to lure me into an empty building for a "job interview." I fled and summoned the police after the asshole wouldn't stop calling or emailing me (he was furious that his prey had escaped). "We can't do anything unless he directly threatens you," said the cop who visited my apartment. Annnnd what the guy already did wasn't enough? LIAR. I knew he was lying but how could I say that and not get arrested by another probable misogynist?
