i lived in Inkster all of my live. There is nothing wrong with Inkster. I've never been shot, stabbed or robbed. All you outsider looking in should stop hating on this great city. Just playing, it is a little rough but it did make me a shoein for the military. Go figure

Probably a good idea. Look how Lenny Price turned out! A good family helps too.....

Every city (yes, even detroit) has at least one nice area and just because you live downriver does not make you ghetto. But downriver as a whole, is not a desireable place to live. Sorry, its the truth.

I always thought that Downriver was mostly pretty nice. Riverview, Wyandotte, Trenton, Monroe. You must be thinking of the Ecorses and the River Rouges....

Actually, 2 house within doors down from me, recently sold for $16k and $15k. I originally had mine for sale for $130k, now down to $80k. The bank can have it and all the crime and disgust of this once clean city.

Default Not a place to raise a family!

Guess inkster is ok if your a single guy, who doesn't mind poverty and trash. Alot of crime and drugs there. Not a place I would consider "nice".

Do a little research on "Richmond Hill, Georgia".

Wasn't Inkster the place where Blacks that worked for Ford were basically indirectly forced to live due to housing covenants in Dearborn? My greatgrandfather worked at the River Rouge Plant and it seems like River Rouge was more mixed. Was that always the case though?

What can I do as a citizen to help make Inkster a better place to live?
Other towns can say what they want about Inkster, but what's going
on with Inkster is bigger than just the local residents. ---t falls from
the top. There are poor, working class, and professionals here just like
our neighboring towns that work hard and take pride in our community.
But what is that key difference that makes "Inkster" a ghetto and other
places not? I love Inkster! Instead of talking bad about ask what you can do
to help make it a better place! I do see positve changes being made,
however, we are in a recession so of course, like any other town we see aban
doned houses, closed business, and depressed people out of work. Yes we need
more people to take pride in their homes, Yes we need to get a grip on
the drug problems and escalating crime rates, but hit me back and tell me who
doesn't. We all have work to do!

Inkster is not a bad place. Sure the city has a few problem areas and there hasn't been much crime out there. Plus I know PLENTY of professionals out there, many having household income over $90,000. Just ride through Inkster and you can see streets of houses with manicured lawns and nice landscaping.
