"And 8 Mile is the one that gets the bad name"
In trite honesty, Cass Avenue is probably one of the worst stretches in Detroit. It's replete with abandoned buildings, slum-tenements, and crime-activity. I used to drive down it all the time with my mother as a child, and she'd always make me lock the car doors! Also, one of my good friends was robbed at gunpoint while trying to cash a check at a liquor store in The Corridor. Sadly, Cass is one of the places that truly demonstrates the dire straights Detroit has made for itself.
