I’ve lived the majority of my adult life in New Orleans, but now make my home in Detroit.
As my friends and family can attest, I’m constantly drawing parallels between my two homes. And I’ve often said that Detroiters and New Orleanians have a fierce loyalty to their city in common. It’s unmistakable – the heartfelt affinity of those that love and defend the underdog.
So I was simply thrilled to see a representative of my beloved New Orleans recognizing the often overlooked attributes of the Motor City in a recent news article. The headline even calls out the remarkable hometown pride that the two cities share.
And to top it off, the article notes the contributions of Quicken Loans to Detroit’s revival:
“We had a tour of the Quicken Loans’ bright new offices, where young hi-tech professionals work in teams and travel through the building on scooters. Quicken Loans, the country’s largest online lender, moved 1,700 employees to downtown Detroit last year and has bought several nearby office buildings since then.”
So cool to see my two favorite cities mingling! Take a closer look at the article for yourself:
