Seven mile and Chalmers is probably the roughest neighborhood in Detroit, in my opinion. It cracks me up when people talk about Urban Decay & Detroit, and they assume the worst neighborhoods are down in the city at Woodward by the university, or in that general area. In reality, the worst hoods are the closest to the 8 mile border.

lmao yea the whole eastside is terrible smh and every other side is so great. yea stay away from the villages, morningside, East English Village etc

Um lets see I agree that east 7mile and Vandyke is terrible. But whats crazy is just past Dequindre it is not. That is our biggest problem. How in one area its terrible and then a couple of lights down its totally different.

Actually not true. Much of the 8mile border is not bad

This is definitely true. Some of the worst neighborhoods are near 8 Mile, especially on the East Side.

Seven Mile east of Gratiot is proibably the worst, IMO. It's the highest crime precient in the city.

I'll kind of agree. West 8 Mile, like by Evergreen and Livernois, doesn't look all that bad and has a pretty decent postwar housing stock. However, the abundance of adult entertainment doesn't do the neighborhoods wonders. I noticed this just the other day. Much of East 8 Mile on the Detroit side looks better than the Warren side, and further east, the first couple of blocks into Detroit are nearly identical to the Eastpointe side with the exception of there being a few more boarded up houses and bars on some windows. However, a few blocks south would be seen by many as hell on earth, and those decent blocks might not last long.

As for 7 Mile, West 7 over by Lahser has a couple of streets with mid-60s ranches straight out of Livonia or Sterling Heights (and I believe they don't sell for much less). Glastonbury is one of these streets, I think. I haven't been by there in a while. However, some of these streets (the one I'm thinking of has houses identical to Holden in the 14/Ryan area) are really beat up. East 7 Mile is almost universally raggedy except in the immediate vicinity of the old Holy Cross Hospital and immediately around the Catholic church on Rolyat; there's some nice 60s era houses in the former, but I don't know how the neighborhood is doing with the hospital being gone. The rest of East 7 Mile is basically hopeless.

Morningside isn't looking too good the last few years, either.

The east side is where you drive through and hope that your car does not break down.

Ohh come on, some parts of the east side are not so bad.
