For Detroit, within the city its Midtown:

WOODWARD Corridor


CASS Corridor


Unfortunately, the abandonment of Detroit was so significant that the most walkable commercial strip in the area developed outside of the city:

Royal Oak

I love Garden Bowl. It's one of my favorite Detroit spots!

Residential architecture especially, and built environment generally, are strikingly (to me, at least) similar in urban KC and Detroit, with the obvious caveat that Detroit's core is much larger and more extensive.

Another one for OKC:
Automobile Alley, historic home to the majority of the city's first car dealerships in the 1920s.

Louisville's best one is 4 miles of continuous urban landscape with lots of restaurants and shops, It runs down Baxter Ave and Bardstown Rd, the greater area is called the Highlands.

https://www.google.com/maps/@38.2349...7i13312!8i6656


Louisville's second largest urban corridor runs along Frankfort Ave through Clifton and Crescent Hill neighborhoods


https://www.google.com/maps/@38.2542...7i13312!8i6656


Third best area would be across the river in downtown New Albany, which is rapidly gentrifying. There are probably two dozen good restaurants there.


https://www.google.com/maps/@38.2848...7i13312!8i6656


4th best area would be the main street of Jeffersonville which is across the river from downtown Louisville.

Runner-up would be Elm St. in Deep Ellum between Hall St. & Good Larimer.

Also Bishop Arts District is in the Running as well.

I'll add a few for nearby Cincinnati, one of the great urban cities in America


Oakley Square


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1517...7i13312!8i6656


Mt Adams - it's an Italian hill town that somehow ended up in Ohio


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1076...7i13312!8i6656


Over the Rhine / Findlay Market. Cincy is making strides to gentrify this area. That's a brand new street car line in the road.


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1154...7i13312!8i6656


Main Strausse (German for Main St) in Covington KY


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.0838...7i13312!8i6656


Monmouth St in Newport KY. This area was once rampant with illegal gambling


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.0906...7i13312!8i6656


Downtown Bellevue KY


https://www.google.com/maps/@39.1068...7i13312!8i6656
