zug island and river rouge.
This is the first in our series of Detroit neighborhood and landmark-specific neckties.
Located where the mouth of the River Rouge spills into the Detroit River, once a centuries-old Native American burial ground, Zug Island became instrumental to the auto industry and home to the Great Lakes Steel Corporation and it's three largest blast furnaces in the world.
Navigate your city with "Ties to Detroit." Detroit is notoriously vast and sprawling, thus maps are always necessary in hand (or around neck) -- never get lost again! Perfect for newcomers, ex-pats and long-time Detroiters alike. Map illustrations are adapted from a 1960 publication outlining the unit foot and land values for the entirety of city property before its eventual decline.
