What does it mean to you to be a Detroiter?
If you talk to people who live in the city, you'll hear dozens of different answers.
M.L. Elrick is a proud resident and he's got some ideas.
Detroit turns 314 on July 24. While the city has changed a lot over the years we are still proud to call it home.
And of course, there are some aspects of Detroit living that make it truly one of a kind. For example:
- When you're done cutting your lawn - there's another lawn down the block you have to cut.
- You believe despite all the investigations, despite the decade Elrick tried to prove it and lack of evidence, there was a party at a certain mansion - named Manoogian.
- When every new business in your area tuns out to be a marijuana dispensary.
- When you go to the Detroit Zoo ... in Royal Oak.
- When you are prepared to go toe to toe over which coney island - American or Lafayette is better.

Post with the hashtag #ThisIsDetroit on Facebook and Twitter and tell Elrick and his cameraman what to check out in Detroit and he might include it in next Friday's report on Detroit's actual birthday!
