Ummmm...... I think you mean I-94, I-90 doesn't run through Michigan. Are you talking Dearborn or Melvindale or Allen Park. Middle to upper-middle class for the most part. Melvindale is probably the most blue collar of the three. Dearborn has the widest range of incomes and neighborhoods. Ford execs live in some exclusive parts, there are also ethnic neighborhoods on the east side. Wide range of shopping, cultural, religious, sports available.

Agreed. Allen Park would be my choice. Nice homes around the Park Ave area.

Houston Whittier? That's Detroit isn't it? Gratiot and 7 Mile. I would not recommend that area at all.

A quick Google search says Coventry is in Highland Park. Even worse

Central is in SW Detroit around Michigan and 94...not the best area, but on the mend sort of, lots of hispanic people who are reviving the neighborhood. It has a long way to go.

Google says Laing is also around Gratiot/Kelly/McNichols/Seymour. BADDDD.
Images speak louder: Gratiot Ave and Seymour St - Google Maps

Do yourself a favor and stay out of the city limits.

Well I mean the only area I would touch is Central. not sure what kidna of neighborhood you're looking for but....

I'm very progressive in what Detroit can be, and I don't mean to be negative, but I'm just tryin' to say it's a good idea to stay out of some seriously troubled areas. With the prices the way they are now, you could get some bargains in the suburbs for the same as a lot of places in the city.

It just occurred to me that I-94 and Michigan Ave. intersect again out near Ypsilanti and EMU. Just want to make sure we are taking the right spot. Dearborn, Allen Park and Melvindale are not subdivisions, the are three separate cities. Which one are you talking about?
