Lisa Nuszkowski, Executive Director Detroit Bike Share about Detroit Open Streets and Bike Share and Emily about Slow Roll Detroit

Lisa Nuszkowski, Executive Director Detroit Bike Share talks about the recent Open Streets Detroit, part of a global initiative to reclaim public space by temporarily transforming streets into paved parks and public spaces.

Lisa shares how the Open Streets Detroit opened the nearly four miles of continuous roadway on Michigan Ave. (US 12) and Vernor Highway to create space for healthy activities, community building, and connection to local retail by closing it to motorized traffic. People were able to experience Michigan Ave and Vernor Ave in a new way, whether by walking, running, biking, rollerblading, or skateboarding and bringing ethnic neighborhoods together.

Open Streets is a event under the Downtown Detroit Partnership. It was presented by DTE Energy Foundation but it was the many groups and organizations that made it work

There was complementary programming at locations along the route- yoga, dancing, basketball, and other health and wellness activities.
Lisa shares the long-term vision of making Open Streets Detroit a regular program that highlights other streets and neighborhoods throughout Detroit and reflects the changes in Detroit that are creating so many recreational and non motorized activities.

Lisa talks about the soon to be Detroit Bike Share Program and the goals of the program modeled after programs which are becoming popular nationwide

Emily comments on the new Kailua-Kona Bike Share stations set up in Kailua- Kona at Huggo's, Courtyard King Kamehameha’s Kona Beach Hotel and Hale Halawai. PATH, People's Advocacy Trail's Hawaii under direction of Executive Director Tina Clothier and the County of Hawaii have been leading the efforts for the Kailua-Kona Bike Share Program.

Emily comments on the commonality of recreational activities in Detroit and Hawaii and talks about Slow Roll Detroit, a weekly bike ride co-founded by Jason Hall and Mike McKool and run by volunteers with several thousand + bicyclists riding through the streets of Detroit on Monday nights.

I enjoy sharing these stories. Detroit, Hawaii, all communities are continually going through sociological challenges regarding how to transform into communities that co exist and encourage use of non motorized vehicles. Sharing the stories I feel highlights how similar our communities are ...

Emily T Gail from the Detroit Historical Society and Jewish Historical Society Exhibit titled Chasing Dreams Baseball and Becoming American
October 19, 2016 11:58 AM PDT

I was walking thru the Detroit Historical Museum when Wendy Rose Bice, and Gail Greenberg said hello and asked me if I was Emily Gail. It was fun to have them recollect some of their memories of our efforts in the 70's-80s with "say nice things about Detroit" and the Emily Detroit Runs.

Then I discovered Wendy Executive Director of the Jewish Historical Society of Michigan and Gail Senior Staff Assoc with the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit were responsible for the wonderful new exhibit I had enjoyed a few days earlier titled "Chasing Dreams Baseball and Becoming American".

I was so pleased to have them take the time to tape a segment for the Emily T Gail Show espnhawaii.com about the exhibit and related family events they have planned which we talk about in our interview.

Meanwhile ....Here is some of the info about the exhibit from a nice story in the Oakland press by Sari Cicurel:

The Jewish Historical Society of Michigan brought the exhibit to the Detroit Historical Museum and it will run through November 27.

The exhibit is presented by West Bloomfield-based Jewish Historical Society of Michigan and the Detroit Historical Society. The exhibit celebrates heroes and pioneers like Hank Greenberg, Sandy Koufax, Jackie Robinson Roberto Clemente and Ichiro Suzuki. At the same time that baseball has reflected the best of America, it has also been a mirror for challenges the nation has faced, such as racism, anti-Semitism, class stratifications, the challenges of urbanization.

During the three months some special events included:
• A Conversation about baseball and baseball history with Mike “Stoney” Stone, 97.1 The the event with Mike “Stoney” Stone was a casual evening featuring baseball-themed food and baseball history at the Detroit Historical Museum.

• A Family Day took place presented by the Jewish Historical Society of Michigan and the Michigan Jewish Sports Foundation. Fans of all ages practiced their play-by-play radio and television skills in a Baseball Broadcast Booth, a special presentation chatting up baseball trivia and stats with a program entitled, “Old Jews Talking Baseball,” featuring Max Lapides, Bob Matthews, Irwin Cohen and Jim Grey and baseball-themed food.

The Detroit Historical Museum is located at 5401 Woodward Ave., Detroit. For more information, visit michjewishhistory.org or call 248-432-5517.

As on personal note. I am so grateful I joined the Detroit Historical Society. I had no idea how much goes on at the Detroit Historical Museum and Dossin Museum that fits my lifestyle and interest. The nice invites to exhibit openings, the newsletter is one of the best I have seen and read cover to cover. Less than $5 a month. detroithistorical.org
