"Great Industrial History But Not Much Else"

This was the spot that you wanted to be based in when the Motor City was gaining its name. This is an area of town that has a very rich history to it in terms of the start of the auto industry as we know it today. You can see this rich history through the many manufacturing buildings and businesses that still stand here. Unfortunately there isn't much else in this neighborhood!

Though there may have been some homes back then to speak of, there simply aren't now. The buildings that were once home to the many industrial marvels years back still stand, most of them abandoned. Not only are there not homes to speak of here, but the area itself has become quite rundown.

There may be some potential here but it would take a lot to turn this rundown industrial area of town into a thriving residential neighborhood. It's sad to look at what must have been wonderful years back and see what it has turned into through time and circumstances.
Pros
  • Easy to Get To
Cons
  • Nothing At All to Speak Of Here
  • This is not a neighborhood just a manufacturing area

"This is not a neighborhood by any stretch"

There is no neighborhhood here. The only thing that stands around here are a bunch of factories, old industrial buildings, and old looking shops. This neighborhood is a few miles from Eastern Market, that is how I have seen it driving through.

This area is borded on both sides by I-75 and I-94. When you look at it, it sort of becomes a symbol of what Detroit used to be, and what it is now. What was once a thriving area with jobs and manufacturing had become obsolete and decayed. I think some of the factories down here still operate but I can't know for sure. There is the sounds of manufacturing noise, but I couldn't pinpoint where it was coming from.

Some of the major streets that go through this area are Hamtramck Drive, East Grand Boulevard, Russell Street, and Trombley Street. A few miles south of here and Russell is at the heart of the Eastern Market District. Clay Street and St. Aubin also run through this particular area of town.

There are actually some residential neighborhoods close to this area, on both sides of each major freeway. But again this is not even a neighborhood, just an old manufacturing area with a bunch of brown grass everywhere.
Cons
  • This is not a neighborhood just a manufacturing area
