"Inner city throughway"

3rd gets you from the WSU campus downtown to the Joe Louis arena . In between you'll get a pretty good slice of Detroit life. There are more depressing streets in the city, yes, but 3rd ranks pretty high on the list. Empty lots, liquor stores and government housing projects. As you get down towards MLK it get's pretty desperate.

If I were a WSU student I'd definitely stick closer to the campus area. The pluses of 3rd are proximity to campus and the University Food Center, a strip mall with a Blockbuster video and grocery store, all within walking distance.

I guess another plus is, being so close to campus I used to see a lot of police patrols. Because it borders the Lodge freeway and leads to campus, it's a pretty busy street. Not so sure I'd be comfortable living here with small children.
