The AmericaJR Web Team recently gathered to walk along the Dequindre Cut Greenway in Detroit. It officially opened to the public in May of 2009. The 1.15-mile greenway, developed through a public, nonprofit and private partnership, offers a pedestrian link between the Riverfront, Eastern Market and many of the residential neighborhoods in between. Formerly a Grand Trunk Railroad line, the Dequindre Cut is a below-street level path that runs parallel to St. Aubin Street, between Mack Avenue and Woodbridge Street just north of the Riverfront. Well-known for its urban artwork and graffiti which is commissoned by the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy, the first completed section of the Dequindre Cut is between Woodbridge Street and Gratiot Avenue.
