Thanks for answering I`m into to urban decay and I`ve seen sites with detroit decay already. I am 25 yrs old I dont want to offend people with questions like this but I just love these things. I was 5 when I left detroit been living in dallas for 20 yrs. Seeing videos and pics help but they show the same places alot. I heard east 7 mile was real dangerous like runyon ave I just want to learn more it and other areas in the city.

I dont think people are getting offended you just asked a question I wish I could answer but I dont know much about the city I left 35yrs Ago. Why are you interested in urban decay. And maybe your parents could tell you about the worst neighborhoods in the city since you did live there.

Thanks sam im really studying urban decay and to most people detroit is #1 in that so I think this is a good place to ask questions about the city. Actually we didnt live in detroit proper it was roseville guess I should of said detroit metro. I hear the east side of 7 mile is bad but the west is pretty good. So I just want to get a few more opinions about the most downtrodden area along E 7 mile.

It's hard to say, Because a lot of the hoods around east 7mile are pretty wild, but Runyon Ave is notorious for violence... last year 5 people was murdered in a dope house. 7mile & Van Dyke is also a real rough area because it's a war zone where the gangs go all out. My boy Josh got shot with an AK 47 by Iowa and Van Dyke. 7 mile & Gratiot Hoods are also very dangerous especially at night like at Chalmers and Hayes. I read an article about 3years ago about the violence along E. 7mile and a police officer stated that some of the crime scene he came upon look like a Hollywood splatter movie because of the bloodshed and dead bodies he saw. 7mile aint no joke!

7 Mile/Hayes is awful.

Probably the most dangerous neighborhood in Detroit.

The whole area around 7 Mile/Gratiot is just terrible nowadays. Even really bad for Detroit East Side standards.
