"Run down area of town"

This is another neighborhood that borders the Eliza Howell Park. Like I mentioned before, I am sure the park was nice in its heyday, but not really anymore. I even think the city stopped cutting the grass at the park like two years ago. I can only imagine what it looks like now.

When I and my friends were in the area, we never had much occasion to venture directly into the residential neighborhoods. Instead we stayed around I-96 and Telegraph. It is close to Club Yesterday's on Telegraph, which is nice trendy little nightspot. Just don't hang out in the parking lot.

There are plenty of retail outlets up and down Telegraph over here, so that is a good thing for the neighborhood I guess. The overabundance of fast food joints isn't the most positive things for the resident's health, however.

City buses run over here as well, into oddly late hours. The Southfield Freeway is not far from here either, as far as thoroughfares taking you where you need to go. Just judging by some of the people I see wandering the alleys behind the shopping center on Telegraph, the neighborhood is probably not the greatest one to live in.
Pros
  • Major thoroughfares close by
  • Not Far from Amenities in Nearby Communities
Cons
  • Indigent people loitering Telegraph Rd
  • Many Abandoned Homes

"Not An Ideal Area"

This is one of rhose unfortunate areas of the city that is in need of some revitalization help. The truth is that Brightmoor was never a hugely popular area with great amenities, but it did have a more vibrant community at one time. This was a much older community and years back consisted of many senior citizens. It was believed that many of the homes just never found new owners as the years went by.

The bright spot of this area is the fact that it is ocated close to several parks. It has a great deal of beauty in these parks and has great potential for families with children. It is located close to the neighboring city of Redford, but even that and the amenities located nearby havent brought this area back to life.

This is an area at the forefront of many revitalization efforts and so many hope that it will be brought back. There is great potential but the way it stands right now this is not an ideal area.
Pros
  • Great Parks Nearby
  • Not Far from Amenities in Nearby Communities
Cons
  • Many Abandoned Homes
  • Revitalization Efforts Needed
  • Huge Population Drop
