Not at all. You got the wrong one. I'm the guy who wishes the west-side would stop being ignored in favor of the same old places. The video is simply boring. A guy holding a camera and driving in a neighborhood with little talking is...meh. It shows a normal neighborhood with some boarded up houses. How shocking that a city with population lose and high foreclosure rates would have some unoccupied homes. I suppose it does dispel one notion, in the footage I watched I didn't see the roving gangs of drug dealing rapists and murderers that are supposed to be EVERYWHERE. Maybe that was in the second half. smh

People wanting to move to Southfield? The market has spoken.
wow really

first of all where did I call the neighborhood "nice" and by Detroit Standards smh. I live north east and is only that way when I visit friends, I don't know how "most" of it looks and I'm not going to say either way. I said FROM WHAT I KNOW of the area it is still DECENT. What didn't you understand about that. Like Slappy San said, of course there will be empty homes, duh we lost over half our population. "In Fairness"???....yea thanks for that lmfao

Oh well, sorry if I disappointed you.

He/she asked what his/her neighborhood looked like now and I thought a visual would be fitting.

^^^Yes, these were/are virtually my same thoughts as well.

The neighborhood probably would have slowly declined anyway, but the mortgage crisis is simply speeding up the process.

When people say Warrendale looks decent it makes me wonder if they've ever been to a neighborhood where all the residents took pride in what their property looked like and the ones who didn't were shamed into at least cutting the grass every couple of weeks. Warrendale looks like crap.

Agreed.

us66 summed it up perfectly, and it's very true, Warrendale is a nice neighborhood for Detroit's standards. In any other city Warrendale would be the ghetto, or at least unimpressive/lower income.

If you're the one who said Warrendale was "nice", then yeah. Not sure why you're shaking your head. It's pretty clearly a dump on the way to being a ghetto. The only redeeming factor is that in Detroit, there will always be a place to make Warrendale look "Detroit nice".

Instead of just shaking your head, can you tell us a little more articulately why you think Warrendale is a nice neighborhood by reasonably objective standards? Used to be nice? Sure. Nice now? No way.
