I'm definitely warming up to Mt. Adams more and more. Very cool area.

Detroit doesn't have any truly urban neighborhoods.

Midtown/Cass Corridor comes close, but it has a LONG wway to go before it can compete with the urban neighborhoods in other cities.

From the views I've seen, it almost like an old neighborhood of New England to me. Probably wouldn't say that if I was more familiar with the Midwest, but I was surprised to see something like that Ohio.

What a stupid reply indeed.

The thread is not titled: "What is the largest and most spectacular downtown area in the midwest", it is titled: What is the best urban NEIGHBORHOOD in the Midwest.

Have you for example ever been to Cincinnati? That cities core neighborhoods such as Mt. Adams and Over the Rhine for example are more similar to the historic neighborhoods of east coast cities. The 19th century rowhouses, narrow streets, with cornerplaces are not found in Chicago like that.

How well do you know Detroit? Despite that most of the city proper is a wreck, there are enclaves on the far northwest side of the city of Detroit that are the some of the most beautiful and opulent majority African American neighborhoods in the country. Like a whole neighborhood of Barack Obamas house in Kenwood.

Obviously Chicago has the most spectacular downtown area in the midwest, if not the country, but most of the rest of city, while having many great neighborhoods to live in are no more distinctive than what you see in Queens, NY. That't not an insult to Queens either.

I'm going to bat for the Central West End or Lafayette Square in St. Louis. And of course I'm not biased.

How would you define "urban?"
