Local Reviews

Houses are affordable. Easy access to streets, highways and public transportation. In great proximity to neighboring suburds

I live on a quiet street in an upscale neighborhood with a mix of original and new homes, surrounded a golf course and a lake. Stores for shopping are a couple miles away, four excellent grocery stores, some great restaurants are nearby.

It is lower cost living. My house is well built and insulated well. a waterpark is nearby, i enjoy going there.

The small mom and pop stores are great. They really get to know you cause you shop there all of the time . They are what helps living in the area

there is nothing i like living here for it has nothing to offer anyone who want a safe and quiet life

What I like most about where I live they are families that have been here for a long time so they do look out for one another

About

Detroit, MI

Overview of Detroit

Detroit is currently in the process of reviving its economy. While the most populous city in the state of Michigan is at work making that happen, a Detroit apartment won't cost you much. That's a fact that has made artists and makers and urban adventurers head for Michigan.

Living in Detroit

In the late 19th century, Detroit was known as the "Paris of the West." It was here that Henry Ford built his first car. Following him came Dodge, Packard, Chrysler, and other automotive impresarios. With industry came laborers from the American South and Europe. The powerhouse of Detroit gave rise to unions and civil rights struggles in the post-war period. When the auto industry fell into decline, so did Motown. Renaissance remains a powerful theme for residents, however. Ongoing downtown revitalization speaks to the resilience that drives this city.

In terms of art and culture, the Detroit Institute of Arts is one of the larger, more impressive art museums in the country. The Motown Museum invites you into the small home where the Supremes, the Temptations, and the Jackson 5 all recorded gold record hits. You can also catch a show in the stunning Fox theater.

For apartment renters looking for sporting events, head over to Comerica Park to watch the Detroit Tigers play baseball, Ford Field to see the Lions on the gridiron, Joe Louis Arena to watch the Red Wings take the ice, or head out to Auburn Hills to see the Pistons shoot hoops.

In terms of getting around the city, the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT) provides bus service. Many residents drive as well.

Apartments in Detroit-Study

There are many higher education opportunities in the greater Detroit metropolitan area. The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is approximately 43 miles away, and Wayne State University, University of Detroit Mercy, and the College for Creative Studies, are all within Detroit city limits.

Apartments in Detroit-Work

While the American auto industry isn't as vibrant as it once was, there are still many job opportunities in the Detroit area. Some of the major employers include Blue Cross Blue Shield, OnStar, and HP Enterprise Services, among others.
