Context is everything, and location is most certainly context. To get a better idea of where the El Moore is located, and thus a better understanding of its context, you need to know where we are.

From Wiki:

Midtown Detroit is a mixed-use area containing a business district, cultural center, university, and residential neighborhoods located along the east and west side of Woodward Avenue between Downtown Detroit and the New Center. The community area of neighborhoods is bounded by the Chrysler Freeway (I-75) on the east, the Lodge Freeway (M-10) on the west, the Edsel Ford Freeway (I-94) on the north, and the Fisher Freeway (I-75) on the south.[1]The vibrant area includes several historic districts, the Detroit Medical Center, and Wayne State University.

And inside of Midtown is our very own historic district, known as Willis-Seldon. For more information about Willis-Seldon,  you can check out the background bio provided by the City of Detroit Historical Society here.
