Alter RD which separates the city of Detroit from the suburb of Grosse Pointe Park

In Baltimore, gentrified "Bolton Hill' and the Symphony Hall - MD College of Arts district, are very near the "Upton" area, traditionally the heart of black community life, where the Freddie Gray disturbances happened.
