"Kinda noisy neighborhood in the Hamtramck area"

A girl I used to date had a cousin that lived over here, in the Hamtramck area. I gave her a ride a few times over here when her car was in the shop.

I remember it being loud and noisy due to the Coleman Young Airport being close by. I heard several planes coming in when I was in this neighborhood. It kind of reminded me of a neighborhood that was really close to railroad tracks.

When I was driving through here though, everything looked fairly clean and orderly. There were not a bunch of buildings and houses in a state of disrepair, and I didn't see a bunch of vagrants wandering the streets like some places in Detroit.

The major streets in the area are Gratiot Avenue, Outer Dr E, and McNichols. There was also a pretty big cemetery over near the airport.

This neighborhood had retail outlets, fast food restaurants, and DOT buses running, and was pretty much standard city fare. There are a few parks around, and a school as well. Overall not a bad neighborhood by any stretch. If you had to settle down and find a home around here, other than the noise, this might not be a bad a choice for your money.
Pros
  • Neighborhood looked ok
  • Retail outlets close by
  • Major roadways border neighborhood
Cons
  • Loud noisy airport not far away

"Not Too Bad"

If you can put up with the noise from the airport then this really isn't a bad area of town. As with any neighborhood near an airport, you can expect to hear a lot of noise from planes traveling overhead. To some people that doesn't matter or they get used to it, but it's certainly good to know that this exists here.

The homes are pretty well kept and therefore you don't see much in terms of desolate areas. There is crime here, but it's about average and therefore you feel safe enough walking around. It's close to other desirable areas of town and you feel like you have your fair share of amenities nearby.

There are plenty of families with kids here and though you don't have too many huge parks in the area, you really aren't far from any either. It's a nice way of being near the city but yet being a little bit removed in a true neighborhood sort of feeling. It's the best of both worlds and a very affordable way to do it!

If you want an area of town that has great amenities, is close to just about everything, has a good cost of living, and you don't mind the noise of the airport nearby then this may be a good choice for you. There is plenty of good to offer and therefore it's a little bit above average overall.
Pros
  • Good Sense of Community
  • Close to Many Amenities
  • Major roadways border neighborhood
  • Neighborhood looked ok
  • Retail outlets close by
Cons
  • Noise from Airport May Deter Some People
  • Loud noisy airport not far away
