Decent. Some rentals but the houses are still maintained. Maybe some vacant houses that haven't been stripped of HVAC and copper plumbing, public schools that are still acceptable, grass is still cut, you're not afraid to walk to the corner store after dark.

Ghetto: Many rentals, front doors on several houses on each block (with no storm doors) are left open all day, living room furniture on the front porch, a dope house that everyone knows is a dope house, people walk down the middle of the street, trees growing through cracks in sidewalks and driveways, gang graffiti, garage doors reversed on their hinges or falling down altogether, every store in the area advertises that they accept Bridge Cards, every store in the area accepts Bridge Cards for every item in the store including non-food items, burned out buildings that have been torched by the landlord, boarded-up, burned-out buildings that are not secure and have been plundered by copper thieves and left open, public schools that are unacceptable, parochial schools that have closed, gun shots at night, every night. You're afraid to let your wife or kids out of the house after dark on foot. Grass more than 8 inches high at more than one house on each block, streets don't get plowed in the winter and a 10+ minute police response time for major crimes in progress. More residents make a living with a "hustle" as opposed to a job where they pay taxes.

I could go on, but Warrendale is not nice and it's not decent anymore.
whatever thats YOUR opinion of whats decent or not. I dont care anymore, you're so worried about how a neighborhood looks here, why don't you do something about it? otherwise don't talk about it

lmfao you fool. The only "gang" that get recognized in Detroit are the bloods (the 7mile bloods) and they have NO ties to the real bloods from LA and actually are considered fake bloods. No real crips or any form of Chicago gang in Detroit with the exception of the hispanics in SW, and they still aren't big. Detroit never took to non-home grown crews. So guess again. Whats detroit has are local crews, mostly named after streets. Now I know you don't live in Detroit smh.

unless its YBI, Pony Down, BKs, BMF, East Warren, Joy Rd, Murder Row, ABM, or some extension of those........they are pretty much irrelevant in Detroit and most poeple get clowned on for claiming some other city gang

HAHA!!! People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

I will ignore the rest of your comments, since you did the exact same thing that you chastised me for (with respect to me agree with another poster that Detroiters are poor and under educated/employed).

And yet you just made a generalization that there are no gangs in Detroit, which is also inaccurate.

how is it inaccurate? what is inaccurate is you making it seem as Detroit dudes are out here reppin crips and bloods, and chicago gangs..........which is few and far in between. YBI, BKs, BMF, Pony Down, East Warren etc are NOT gangs....they are Crews which is different. The average dude hustlin in Detroit would clown you for speaking about some out of state "gangs".

and like I said, that shows you don't live in the city. The only people who call the local crews in Detroit "gangs" are suburbanites. If you lived in the city (hood or not), you would know different
