Peek inside Manoogian Mansion gives glimpse into Kilpatrick's once-lush life | The Detroit News | detnews.com (http://detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081028/METRO/810280459 - broken link)

I was just reading this article, and it says inside it that the new mayor Ken Cockrel will not be moving into the mansion. Does anyone have any guesses or really knows what will be the fate of the historical mansion?? I really doubt that it will be let go by the city, but it seems like it would costs tons of taxpayers money to keep up with a mansion that no one even lives in. Any speculation?

I've now read a recent article that the mansion is currently being used by the Detroit Police as a storage place for materials and other items like weapons, protection, etc.

It also says that Mayor Cockrel will be meeting with Alex Manoogian to discuss the future of the mansion, so maybe it will really be given back to the Manoogian's, after 44 years of being owned by the city.

It's obvious that it will no longer serve as a residence for the future mayors of Detroit.

That is great. The Manoogians seem like decent folks. They do an immense amount of chairity. They also have class from what I can tell (I know of them, do nto know them). Maybe they will restore it to its former glory. It would cost a fortune, but they have it. That would be great for Detroit.
