King of the Corner
Get some shopping in after breakfast. Kitty corner to the block is Hello Records. Drop in and dig through the crates for new or used records from the s through the s. Explore the endless stacks for dusty novels and nonfiction volumes.
1967 Detroit riot
This beloved neighborhood establishment serves some of the best sandwiches in Detroit and its beer and wine selections are nothing to sniff at either. People with dietary restrictions can count on vegetarian and vegan options as well as gluten-free bread. Consider ordering the Gutty, a massive sandwich served on a kaiser roll and topped with Milano salami, Sy Ginsberg pastrami and corned beef, bacon, beef brisket, sharp cheddar, romaine lettuce, and garlic mayo.
Take a break and head over to Meta Physica Wellness.
Relax your muscles with a massage or sweat in the sauna. If you want to refresh yourself after your treatment, pick up a smoothie, juice, or elixir from the organic juice bar. After your break, head over to Astro Coffee for some afternoon coffee. Astro also roasts its own beans.
JOHN K. Nobody seems to remember exactly when John King Books North opened; it was either July 1, or We just cleared out the building that Spring, built the shelves and the front counter, and started loading the place with books. When John King bought the building, there were still signs on the walls advertising model trains. There were offices near the back of the store, perched on pillars and accessed by a winding metal circular staircase. All that was removed, and the staircase sold to someone who wanted it for his own house.
What travellers are saying
Ferndale was a much different place back in the s. It was a sleepy bedroom community filled with aging couples whose children had grown and moved on.
Up the street from King Books North was another book store, Paperbacks Unlimited, which sold only new books; we had a great relationship with them: they sent customers to us, and we sent customers to them. No trendy coffee shops, no fashion boutiques.
Our first managers were Tom H and Laura L. Tom was an employee of the main store, and Laura was a student in the English Department at Wayne State. There were a couple of other employees at the start whose names have been lost to the ages, but Tom and Laura were the ones who priced the books and made things happen.here
