New Detroit Graffiti in Metropolitan Building / Farmer St. Alley

Recently, while traipsing through downtown streets in the wee hours of Memorial Weekend, we discovered a spanking new installation of primo wall-sized graffiti in the Metropolitan Building’s alley off John R, near the terminus of Farmer St. We suspect this group of tags is the work of the good people behind additional recent installations in the storefront windows of roughly 1440 Woodward, but we can’t say for sure. Check ‘em out while the checkin’s good, people. Recent renovation work on Broderick Tower, accessed by construction workers and trucks just a bit further down the alley, is likely to perpetuate further “beautification” of this block in the near future, leading us to believe that these beauties of Detroit graffiti may soon meet their doom at the end of multiple painter’s poles. Find the rare “DEE-TROIT” inlaid steel sidewalk ornamentation and you’ll know you’re in the right place. ~I♥DM
