According to your profile, you live there - what would you consider the worst parts of the city?

I'm sure someone is going to waltz in here and say "all of it." Ha.
I haven't seen much of the city that appeals to me, but the Eastern Market is great. Otherwise it all seems fairly unremarkable and depressing.

If you're talkin' Detroit proper, I'd have to vote for the Cass Corridor as the worst area in Detroit.

I love Detroit. I don't live there now, but I visit to go to concerts, eat at the cool restaurants, etc. It's on the upswing now, don't you think? Lots of good, positive things happenin' despite what else is going on with the state's economy.

Question Which suburb of Detroit is the safest??

Hello,
Can anyone tell me which suburb of Detroit is the safest. I know Detroit is not very safe. How are the roads in both Detroit and the suburbs of Detroit? Please let me know. Does the Detroit Metro plow good in the winter? Is Sterling Heights, Utica, and Warren also safe area too?
Thanks!
Chris

sterling heights is supposedly one of the safer suburbs. troy was ranked the safest community in MI last year (i work at a local news station, we did a story on it). royal oak, birmingham: trendy but expensive and very safe.

warren and roseville are reasonably safe, unless you get too close to 8 mile. madison heights and clawson are reasonably safe, too. these 4 areas are livable and affordable, but not what i would consider "nice" or "beautiful."

utica- i dont know. hazel park, mt. clemens/parts of clinton twp, southfield, oak park, are all too questionable for me to live there.

ferndale is unique and my fav suburb- though not considered super safe, i'd still feel comfortable living there. berkley is safe, nice area, affordable.

northville, walled lake, wixom, those areas seems safe but out of the way.

i hear livonia is safe.

dont know about the others.

roads in winter: i'm from even further north, so i'm used to bad roads. so they seem fine to me, but most people complain. i am used to driving in feet an feet of snow... so i'd ask someone else on that one.

I live in Royal Oak and we are considering a move. The city is no longer family friendly, schools are closing left and right, and they can't even pass a millage to repair the carpet.

We're seriously considering leaving the state due to the horrid job outlook and massive unemployment. However if we do stay, I would choose Petosky Michigan over anywhere else - that place is coming up big. But the wife won't tolerate northern winters, so that is out.

Next on the list if we stay is Berkley, progressive, fantastic schools, still reasonable housing, SAFE (in fact much safer than even Royal Oak) and much more family oriented than Royal Oak will ever hope to be.

The people that seem to enjoy Royal Oak most are people that don't even live here, the people that live here want things different than they are, but nobody is listening. The result? Large scale family-flight out from the city.
