Surrounded by some of the city's most interesting architecture and one of Motown's more famous (though recently closed )bars, Times Square Detroit may not boast the burning white lights of its Broadway counterpart but it does have a host of treasures all its own - from a "Wish Tree" given to the city by Yoko Ono and a towering work by one of America's most important sculptors to a pair of tile murals by Detroit's own ceramicist Tom Phardel. At the heart of the rectangular Square is triangular Robert L. Hurst Jr. Park, just a few steps from the art bedecked Times Square Station on the tony intersection of Park Place, Grand River and Times Square. Recently staff photographer Christine Stamas (CS) and editors took a winter walk through the eclectic urban wonderland.
