Next up in D-Town, Hamtramck Disneyland

We’ve all heard it said that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.  For Dmytro Szylak the saying rings all-too true.  The Ukranian immigrant has managed to create a treasure on the level of Watts Tower in the middle of the Hamtramck neighborhood of Detroit.  It began as a project for Szylak after he retired from a GM factory after 32 years of work, and it seems to have never stopped.  It is named “Hamtramck Disneyland,” though I would say Disney is a bit of a stretch (minus the Mickey head that can be found in the mix).  Perhaps Szylak named it that because it offers the visitor that same bit of fantastical whimsy and heart-warming joy that can be found at the themepark, in the comfort of good ol’ Detroit.
