Almost like a border of sorts, isnt it?

That's a number one sign of gang and drug activity working their turf.

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

Bakers is definitely one of Detroit's greatest assests. Been around for a very long time and is still standing. Also gets a lot of traffic from the burbs as well as the city. I noticed this just the other day. Much of East 8 Mile on the Detroit side looks better than the Warren side,most of east 8mile does definitely look better than the Warren side, with the exception of Concord, Helen, Cardoni and about 3 other streets right pass Cardoni and further east, the first couple of blocks into Detroit are nearly identical to the Eastpointe side true 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. My ex lives over there at this very moment and its the same.

Morningside isn't looking too good the last few years, either. Just was in Morningside and East English Villlage earlier. I'm actually over there a lot since I have a friend who lives in Morningside and my brother lives in EEV. Besides a few homes which are borded up much of the neighborhood is fine.

while people on here keep insisting the Eastside is so bad I'll give you a few facts:

1. The most blighted side of town in the WHOLE city is NOT the eastside its actually northend. People who are not from Detroit will often confuse northend to be just "east" because most of the streets in northend are technically "east" but not the "eastside". The eastside still has plenty of "pockets" of nice neighborhoods just like any other part of the city.
2. The most dangerous neighborhoods are NOT on the eastside. Plenty of you insist that E 7mile is the worst in the whole city but the DEXTER-LINWOOD, the whole brightmoore area, and joy rd and many more non-eastside neighborhoods are WAY worst. Dexter and brightmoore were actually on the "worst neighborhoods" list where there were no eastside areas on. Personally I have felt safer in the King Homes (some bad projects) than I ever felt in brightmoore (a place I will never set foot in again!), Dexter (where I spent many summers and was always worst than my neighborhood, even in the 90s) or on joy rd. As far as "gang activity"......Detroit isn't a gang city. The ONLY area where there are actual "gangs" is actually southwest. The majority of the city is "crews" "neighborhoods" NOT gangs.

Plenty of DETROIT is rundown, not just one side of town. Much of the westside, northend and southwest look no different (and sometimes worst) than the rundown areas on the eastside.

Detroitlove, 7 Mile-Hayes is VERY rough. Check that area out after dark. Anything around 7-Gratiot is very tough nowadays.

That's the busiest police preceient and fire preceint in the city.

Is Clark Park in the area (southwest) you are referring to?
