One year. One city. Endless opportunities.

Postcard from Detroit

So, I'm roughly two weeks into reporting full-time here. The first month was spent setting up the bureau: Buying window treatments and fans (turns out their use was short-lived: it's cold), and my first washer and dryer (I didn't think to measure the space between the walls of the staircase leading into the basement, and picked a dryer that was too large.) and, basically, being a "domestic diva," as one of my editors jokingly called himself. Folks are curious about the house, and neighborhood. Below is the view from the bureau's window. Stay tuned for more details. And better photos.

The view from Time Inc.'s Detroit Bureau. Taken about 8:45a.m., Weds., Oct. 7, 2009.
