Re: Belle Isle, Detroit
I wouldn´t go there at night at any time of the year. During the day it´s OK, but I wouldn´t go near the woods on the north end, it´s somewhat isolated and who knows who is hanging out there. Not many street people bother to go to Belle Isle because they have to walk over the bridge and that is too much of a hassle. I´ve never been bothered by beggars there, but I would watch out for gangstas. There may be pay phones on the island, but I doubt they work, they usually are vandalized and not repaired very quickly, if at all. Payphones have pretty much disappeared in the Detroit area for that reason, plus almost everyone has a cell phone nowadays. There are some restaurants and strip malls near the MacArthur Bridge on the City side that may have pay phones. What do you need to know that for? Don´t you have a cell phone? Or are you doing something illegal and don´t want to leave an easily tracable trail?
