Run #12: W. 48th to W. 38th South of Detroit, North of Lorain

This run started with an unexpected find of alleyway art by the Sign Guy on Wheat Court behind crazy popular Cleveland Bagel, a winner on the 2016 CNBC reality show, Cleveland Hustles. The homes in this neighborhood are stately and historic and it was on this run that I felt like I was now fully entering the heart of the historic fabric of the near west side. Notable landmarks include the former Garrett Morgan High School; May Dugan Center, a service center named after the late May Dugan, a long-time resident of the neighborhood who had been a one-person advocate and counselor for her neighbors in need, comic book-themed Nick's Diner; and the former Old Fashioned Hot Dogs shop (RIP).
