"There are worse neighborhoods in Detroit, and there are better"

My grandparents have lived on this street since my mother was very young, and they've watched this street plummet since the riots in the 70s. It's not too far from Greektown, there's a nice little mall on Lafayette, but it's really not the safest place. My grandparents have lost several cars in this area, some to theft, others to reckless drivers--their house has been broken into on a few occasions, so they installed an alarm system. This neighborhood is literally feet away from the tracks of the old commuter train (not to be confused with the People Mover), and has really fallen into disrepair since it was closed.

They are trying to improve the area, though. There was talk of building another highway in the place of the commuter train, but now the City has decided to use the tracks as an extended bike-path to the river. But who knows if that will go through.
