Same can be said of Detroit Metro Airport for folks who live in northern and central Macomb County, St. Clair Shores, Roseville, Rochester Hills, Waterford, etc.


Rock 95.5 in Chicago is the worst sounding major market rock station in the history of corporate radio.

Agreed- the airport location is also too far from a majority of the area population.

I think the difference is that if you have to take a flight to get to where you are going, you have to drive to the airport. You never have to go to a game or a show.

Yes, it makes me sad, it was a beautiful building and I have a lot of great memories there. I worked there in the mid 90's before moving on to 7. It was a great experience for a guy in his 20's and I still have friends from that time that I see at other venues and events.

The only thing wrong with the Palace was the location. I live in Oakland county and it was a pain in the ass to get to and leave, for those who live downriver, western Wayne or Grosse Pointe it had to be a nightmare. At least for me I can get downtown and park and be in the arena in a half hour and home even a little quicker after a game at LCA.
From any point north, it was easy and fantastic to get to. None of the Detroit Bullshit you have to deal with downtown. I think the shame of it, though, is that it was such a relatively young building. On the bright side, though... Maybe if stadiums and arenas only last 30 years now, that shit hole known as Comerica Park only has a few years left.

For the idiot who keeps saying "it was a building," perhaps we should tear down every mother fucking piece of history that exists. Maybe start with that Motown museum! Then people like you will be happy.

Detroit Metro was planned as the major airport from the 1930s, when the land was purchased and it was turned into Romulus Field. At the time, no one expected the events of the 1960/70s would cause a large portion of the productive people to move north from the city and the inner suburbs.

By taking tax money away from the school kids the billionaire sports team owners can easily build a stadium/arena over two blocks of land.

You can't easily seize one and one half mile square of property to make a new airport. Then add in every landowner nearby who will sue over the expected noise.

Near by? I'm over 20 miles as the planes fly from DTW and they're still annoying. An A320 a mile up in the air is still very loud.

They won't be moving any airports around here.

The airport is where it's at and the only competition is Toledo and Flint. The Palace was easily accessible to maybe 10% of the metro Detroit population and had the newer LCA, centrally located, competing for shows, events and paying spectators. Sadly looks like LCA will be shuttered for a while.

The airport is in a great location. Can't think of a better spot, situated between downtown and Ann Arbor, where a majority of travel through the airport is headed to.

It's not racism, you dolt. It was sarcasm.

No, you were serious. The "Detroit Bullshit" and tear the Motown museum make it pretty clear...

It was a Wayne Country project, so it wasn't going to be located in the northern suburbs.

According to the Detroit Free Press, 9/29/28, the Wayne County airport location at Middlebelt and Goddard was chosen by the Wayne Country board of supervisors over Southgate area locations at Allen and Eureka, King and Allen, and Pennsylvania and Allen.

"The main argument In favor of the site finally selected was its price. With the exception of site 13, which was considered too small to be used as an A-l-A airport, number 16 was the cheapest site offered. It came approximately $900,000 below the estimate for site number 2. Several persons pointed out that the $2,000,000 already appropriated for the airport was "for the acquiring of a site," but the majority seemed to feel some of the appropriation should be used for equipping the airport."

It turned out to be a good choice for the Ann Arbor/Dearborn/Detroit I-94 corridor.
