Where on Earth is Detroit's "Miracle Mile"???? I've heard of 6 Mile, 7 Mile, 8 Mile all the way to 403 Mile but never a Miracle Mile unless you are referring to Woodward Avenue and if you are, they got a loooooooooooooong way to go before I would call it a "Miracle Mile".

There isn't one in detroit. The only thing I can think of is Detroit street in the miracle mile area of Los Angeles - which is very RANDOM.

Same with Atlanta Midtown and whatever the Gold Coast is in Miami.

Also Midtown is a huge area, Chicago's mag mile is a single street.

I don't get this thread. Maybe we could change it to

Which one is better:


A Kitten
Arkansas
Milk
Clouds
Belgium

Why is there no Miracle Mile District or Wilshire Corridor? I mean, it's no midtown, loop, etc. but it's gotta be better than what Detroit has. And The Strip?...Please, that is the sorriest excuse for a commercial street. It's just hotels, casinos, casinos, hotels, and more casinos and hotels. That doesn't compare to a business loop/ whatever mile of Chicago, LA, Boston, NYC, Atlanta, and Miami.

There is no miracle mile in Detroit anymore. Have you been to Woodward Ave. in the last 20 years? and its nothing compared to some of the areas farther off from it. Cleveland also had a miracle mile (Millionaires Row) Euclid Ave. and it was once wealthier than NYCs Fifth Avenue. But again, if you have been down Euclid Ave. in the past 20 years you would see there is nothing left of it anymore. However it is getting millions of dollars putting into it and it will once again be a great strip, hopefully.

Im voting for NYC though.

Haha, an equally valid poll. I'm torn between Milk and A Kitten.

Midtown Atlanta is nice actually, imo. They have a lot of nice restaurants and
clubs/lounges, plus the skyscraper complex. There's also plenty of attractions in the area like the Margaret Mitchell House and the Botanical Garden.

There's nothing unique about it though. There's like a thousand midtowns in America with those same types of activities.

I don't know. I think when all this is completed midtown Atlanta will be atleast somewhat unique.

Atlanta's Midtown Mile looks like a substandard version of the Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego. Nothing unique about it like another poster said.

My vote goes to the Las Vegas Strip first, and Midtown Manhattan second. I don't think a place on this planet can compare to the energy and excitement of the Las Vegas strip, and nothing on earth can compare to the big city vibe of Midtown Manhattan... all the other choices, BLAHHHHHHH!
