    Its so funny that it says, ” A View inside the Packard” and none of the shots are actually from the inside….hahahaha, i’ve been in that place more times than i can count and it changes everytime….keeps getting worse, but if you want to see some of the most amazing graffiti and street art, its a free art gallery….you may run into graff writers, photogs, urbexers, homeless people, but everyone will chat you up and is usually pretty damn nice. This place is unreal along with a few other choice spots in Detroit…it’ll be a sad sad day once its gone.
