Uniroyal Ruins

Posted by jdg | 2:45 PM | , , ,

There's hardly anything left of the old Uniroyal plant on Jefferson just across the bridge from Belle Isle. They are currently doing a massive environmental cleanup there (50-gallon drums of sludge dated 4/2009 all over the place) in order to extend the riverwalk all the way to the island.

The shocking pollution at the site does not deter people from fishing all along the shore there, where 25-year-old scrubby trees and dense brush can make you forget you're in the middle of a massive city.
