For serious why are there SO many people on here, (the serious ones, not the jokes) that are talking about Highland Park being a good potential place to live. It has to be one of the WORST.

Hamtramck really does seem like your best bet. There are some Russians there but not a whole lot:
  • Polish 22.9%
  • Black or African American 15.1%
  • Yugoslavian Bosnian 10.5%
  • Arab (Excluding Iraqi and Lebanese) 8.2%
  • Asian Indian 5.4%
  • Ukrainian 3.2%
  • German 2.9%
  • Albanian 2.8%
  • Bangladeshi 2.7%
  • Irish 2.2%
  • Italian 1.8%
  • Russian 1.4%
  • English 1.1%
  • French (except Basque) 0.8%
  • Lebanese 0.7%
  • Scottish 0.7%
  • Mexican 0.6%
  • Pakistani 0.6%
  • Macedonian 0.5%
  • Iraqi 0.5%
From Wikipedia

A lot of the violent crime in Detroit is drug related. It's right next to Highland Park but they are VERY different places.

Where are you filming? I don't know because I would not want to live in Detroit. Especially if I was moving from another state. The other places you mentioned in my opinion I would not want to either. I grew up mostly in Oakland County. I agree with the other poster you may like Royal Oak and a cute loft. They have a night life there and you could commute to Detroit. Even if you got a nice place in Detroit the surrounding areas are unsafe in my opinion. I would research RO on the net and see the community. When I was moving I looked on craigslist too. Lastly when I moved to Ca I stayed in a hotel for like a week to see where I wanted to live. You can dothe research before you go but just sending money is risky. The picture of the place may not be what it looks like in person

You'll get beaten and killed in Highland Park. STAY AWAY.

What are the advantages and disadvantages to each? Is Highland Park boring and stale? I'm looking for a hustling and bustling area so I'm leaning toward Dexter Road, but your input would be appreciated
You are 0 for 3 there.

There is no subway.

Do not rent sight unseen....ever.

Don't believe people who claim you'll get beaten and killed in Detroit. They love to **** on Detroit for fun.

If you are filming in Royal Oak and Detroit I would advise living along Woodward. I'd try Ferndale and Royal Oak first. Downtown I could recommend a cheap building that I used to live in.

Avoid Palmer Park and Highland Park as well as Hamtramck. Ham-town would not be convenient for a bus rider.

What is your budget?

What is "Detroit city center"? Are you talking about Downtown or the New Center area?

"They love to **** on Detroit for fun." A collection of Photos I assembled earlier this year. The photo's on the 3rd page were mostly Highland Park area. (I'll post another linky soon).
