"A heavily Chaldean oriented area near Palmer Woods area and the State Fairgrounds"

This is an interesting part of the Detroit area. On one side of Woodward you have the Palmer Woods area, and there is also the State Fairgrounds nearby. Then you have this area Chaldean Town, which has a lot of Chaldean residents.

The neighborhood overall is a mixed bag, with some OK streets and some that are incredibly blighted. I used to work with a guy who lived in this area on Annin Street. Man his street had vacant lots overran with weeds and abandoned houses with no windows. Then other streets close to his weren’t quite as bad, with ok homes and decent lawns. Like over on Danbury Street for example. Overall the area appears to be a bit neglected. He told me that a lot of Chaldeans settle here, and then after they improve their financial situation, move elsewhere. Maybe that is why the area doesn't seem to have much money coming into it.

Woodward, Seven Mile, and John R, are all major thoroughfares in the city of Detroit, and usually have plenty of bus stops and retail stores like it does in this neighborhood.

I guess the area is suitable for Chaldean families, but I probably wouldn't want to own a home around here. The area overall just need some revitalization.
Pros
  • Great Ethnic Presence
  • Nice Amenities Nearby
Cons
  • Needs Some Revitalization
  • Not As Thriving as It Once Was

"A Big Ethnic Area"

This town was named for the number of Chaldean Christian immigrants who settled here years back. Many who moved here from other areas of the world often started off here and then decided where they would settle within the Detroit area. It is a town that still has a good Chaldean population but not as much as it used to.

It is located close to some amenities on both the surrounding Woodward and 7 Mile Roads. It has a park nearby and so it's not a desolate area at all. It is however not the thriving community that it once was. When the State Fair Grounds closed a few years back that had a negative impact on this area.

There is still great potential in this community and it is quite accessible. It's easy to get around, has plenty nearby, and there is hope that it will continue to grow in the future.
