Hastings Street Blues: The economic roots that contributed to Detroit's worst summer - Crain's Detroit Business

Monday, June 19, 2017

Paradise Valley, the commercial district, covered the area approximately where Comerica Park and Ford Field are today downtown, said Detroit historian Ken Coleman. His book, Million Dollars Worth of Nerve, profiles the power-players of Paradise Valley and Black Bottom, a residential neighborhood that existed generally where Lafayette Park is now, bounded by Gratiot Avenue to the north, Congress to the south, the Grand Trunk Railroad (the present day Dequindre Cut) to the east and Brush Street to the west.Exactly where the neighborhoods started and ended is up for debate, Coleman said."It's not like these communities were codified in boundaries at City Hall. They were loose in general."Still, what's clear is that the two areas were vibrant, bustling with activity.Joe Louis co-owned a restaurant, the Brown Bomber's Chicken Shack, with Sunnie Wilson on East Vernor (it reportedly lost the legendary boxer $40,000, according to LIFE magazine).Charles Diggs, later the state's first black state senator, was a leading funeral home owner there, as was James Cole, whose funeral home business survives to this day.

Obituary: PR man Bob Goff, promoter of Minnesotans and DFL politics, dies at 80 - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Saturday, April 08, 2017

After he left teaching, Goff became a senior aide to Gov. Karl Rolvaag, who served from 1963-67.In 1966, the day after Goff helped Nick Coleman be re-elected to the Minnesota Senate, Coleman asked Goff to form an advertising agency with him. Coleman and Goff Advertising was established that month. Goff described Coleman as the more talented out of the pair."It was always a great wonderment to me that somebody would ask that I would write something," Goff said.Nick Coleman's son, St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, said Goff was one of the most "wickedly smart and brilliantly funny" people that he had ever met and that it was no surprise why his father had chosen to partner with him."I think in Bob he found a partner that understood the merger of his political life with the public relations side of it," the mayor said.Goff described the ad business in that era as the Wild West with "big bucks" being spent on advertising work done by out-of-town agencies. Goff said he and Coleman prided themselves on offering clients more affordable options.The agency was one of Minnesota's first public relations practices and served a range of clients, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Polaris and the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe."Not only was he a very strategic political thinker, he was also in the business of public relations, marketing, figuring out strategies for clients," said Roger Moe, a friend and former DFL state Senate leader. "He was without a doubt one of the best I ever watched."Moe said that Goff knew how politics came down to connecting with people."He understood it was about friendships and knowing people," Moe said. "He spent time getting to know people. ... He was a great and dear friend. I'll miss him."One of the things that state Sen. Dick Cohen, DFL-St. Paul, will remember the most about Goff was his sense of humor and wit."His humor was very funny and very biting," said Cohen.In 1977, Goff sold his stake in the agency and served as the staff director of the task force on waste and mismanagement under Gov. Rudy Perpich. After two years, he went back to the public relations firm.Goff would later use the breadth of his experience in politics to help lobby for the construction of the Metrodome in Minneapolis and the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.In 2012, Goff retired from the firm, but he joked he would still pop up in the office from time to time to check the corners and "look under the rug.""He was just really fri...
