The 1st Anniversary photo shoot took place in New Center at Pallister and Bethune court. The heart of New Center was developed in the 1920s as a business hub that would offer convenient access to both downtown resources and outlying factories. New Center is a commercial and residential historic district located uptown in Detroit, Michigan, adjacent to Midtown, one mile (1.6 km) north of the Cultural Center, and approximately three miles (5 km) north of Downtown. The area is centered just west of the intersection of Woodward Avenue and Grand Boulevard, and is bounded by, and includes the Virginia Park Historic District on the north, the Edsel Ford Freeway (I-94) on the south, John R Street on the east and the Lodge Freeway on the west. New Center, and the surrounding areas north of I-94 are sometimes seen as coterminous with the North End, while in fact separate districts.
