"Quiet family-friendly street in an established neighborhood"

Sheridan Street is a short, two block residential street running East/West between Oakwood and Summit Streets, also residential. It is a continuous block on the north, but the south side is bisected by Elm Street, also residential. Sheridan lies in the northeast corner of Normal Park, a mostly residential neighborhood comprising 10% of the population of the City of Ypsilanti, located on the cities west side. The Normal Park Neighborhood Association was Ypsilanti's first neighborhood association and remains highly active, distributing a bimonthly newsletter, organizing a neighborhood-wide yard sale in the spring, holiday light displays in the winter, and various social activities throughout the year. Membership in the association is voluntary, and it places no restrictions on homeowners.

Mature oak, maple, elm, and walnut trees line the street, providing ample shade, while the famous Ypsilanti Water Tower stands on Summit, immediately around the end of Sheridan. House styles and ages vary, including late Victorian Queen Anne homes and 1920s and 1930s bungalows. About 3/4 of the homes are owner-occupied, while 1/4 are rented. Although it is home to some Eastern Michigan University students, retirees, and couples, the area is dominated by families with children.

It's a short walk to Estabrook Elementary School, West Middle School, Ypsilanti High School, and Eastern Michigan University. Several small parks with playgrounds are within a few blocks, and Ypsilanti's large Recreation Park, containing Rutherford Pool (swimming), baseball diamonds, and the city's Senior Center is just four short blocks away. Within an easy 3/4 mile walk are downtown Ypsilanti and the Depot Town commercial area, including grocery stores, bars, cafes, and restaurants. (Notable regionally are the Ugly Mug, Luwak Cafe, Bombadil's, Sidetrack, Abe's Coney Island, Cady's, the Corner Brewery, Dalat, Haab's, and the Elbow Room.)
