There's a lot of things I appreciate about Northville. I enjoy the many high-quality restaurants, lively art scene, away-from-the-big-city outdoorsy feel, and strong sense of community.
You might see me around, whether I'm reporting on a story or just chugging much needed caffeine at Solid Grounds or Stone House Coffee and Tea. Feel free to stop and say hi.
