It's been 10 years since they started turning the Dequindre Cut into a park. Who remembers the Cut as it used to be? In this 2-part episode I revisit the past, and make my first return trip to the Cut since it was changed, to get some "before & after" photos. There's also a few history lessons, of course.

He once commanded an empire that stretched across the breadth of this nation, his name was on the side of almost every train, a city in Indiana is named after him, and Michigan's first skyscraper was even built in his honor, but today this unremarkable pile of brick is the only thing left to prove he ever existed.
