"District 5 is the epicenter of culture, education, business, entertainment and medicine." - Councilwoman Mary Sheffield
WE ARE ISLANDVIEW
Just west of West Village, Islandview is named for its proximity to Detroit's island park, Belle Isle. The neighborhood is bound by Jefferson on the south, Mack to the north, Mt. Elliott to the west and Baldwin Street on the east. Historic single- and multi-family homes, apartments and rowhouses populate the eastern end of the neighborhood. The western end is home to nonprofits like Gleaners Community Food Bank and Capuchin Soup Kitchen and its Earthworks Urban Farm.
