My Farewell to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit

My Farewell to the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit – Former Home of the Detroit Red Wings

I had a chance to take some photos of Joe Louis Arena when I was picking up my packet for the Hockeytown 5K on Sunday. I know this building is now formerly closed and will be demolished for a new development. This was one last chance to photograph the interior and exterior. My favorite trip here was watching the Detroit Red Wings beat the Colorado Avalanche during the 2002 Conference finals. Sunday, I will be inside the Little Caesars Arena as Detroit is moving its professional hockey and basketball teams to a single venue. The City of Detroit is now the only city in the U.S. to have all four professional sports franchise venues downtown.
