I've been there a couple of times, but that's it. I've never been to Kansas.

(so, when folks on the north side of the Detroit River say they are going to "Chinatown", is it understand it is in Winsor?

Well, I guess there is no question on the north side of the Detroit River that when says "Greektown"they're talking the heart of the Motor City.
Our Little Italy is much more well known in Detroit and much large than our “China Town”, which is kind of an unofficial name of the Asian area that is along Wyandotte St. W by the university of Windsor.

Detroit has “Greektown” and “Mexicantown”

I'm a total doofus, I typed Wheeling (twice even) but I was talking about Weirton.

Somehow, I never caught my own mistake even after your very specific reply.

Man, that's what being dog tired will do to a brain.

My apologies, I had a bout of the dumb for a couple days.
