"From Palmer Woods on the north, to West Parkway/Brightmoor on the west, to East English Village/Alter Road to the east, to the North End, downtown, Midtown and all other communities... Detroit's neighborhoods have their own character, culture and identity for all to enjoy."
Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones
WE ARE CITY OF DETROIT
Detroit, nicknamed the Motor City, boasts of a rich automotive and cultural history as the hub of the American automotive industry and the birthplace of the Motown Sound. As the largest city in Michigan, Detroit in recent years has witnessed an influx of new residents and unprecedented economic development and reinvestment.
With nearly 680,000 residents, this Midwest city sits on an international border with Windsor, Ontario and attracts hundreds of thousands to its spectacular riverfront, parks, world-class cultural institutions and attractions, fine restaurants and wide variety of entertainment options.
Equally attractive are Detroit’s vibrant neighborhoods with considerable affordable housing options and strong community participation. While Detroit is known as a working city, its residents also like to play and are ardent supporters of the four professional sports teams that will all play in the city. The Motor City is a great place to live, work and play.
