Run #8: W. 58th to W. 50th Between Detroit and Lorain

This section is the heart of the eastern portion of the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood. It features places like the popular local music bar Happy Dog (named one of the Best Bars in America), Saint Stephen Church (built in 1875 and whose main altar won first prize at the Chicago World's Fair of 1893), Ithaca Court Community Garden, and the new Waverly Elementary School. Most of the streets have retained a beautiful tree-lined canopy but W. 50th, in particular, is striking. I also knocked out Bridge Ave and Bridge Place to W. 45th and snapped a photo of the typical long line at uber popular neighborhood ice cream (and wintertime ramen) shop, Mason's Creamery. While doing so, I got caught in a rainstorm but I got a nice rainbow photo out of it.
